Forthcoming Society Events


Trains and boats and planes are all included in our new season’s talks as well as medicine, art, archaeology, war and literature. Starting with a demonstration of the grim reality of 17th century surgical practices (any volunteers?) we will be discovering how railways developed in Purbeck and enjoying a slice of social history with the story of the Boots Booklovers’ Library. How many works of Poole public art can you identify? There will also be revelations from the National Trust excavations on Brownsea Island and tales from Poole in the days of the First World War.  I hope you enjoy the programme.

    • The regular Wednesday meetings start at 7.30 pm. The other events vary, but the time is stated for each one. I’ll make sure that the time is put on every event to prevent doubt. Jenny
