Our next event is on Wednesday 19th September, at 7.30 in the Parish Room, Church Road LW, when Martin Hedges will tell us all about ‘Frauds of the 19th Century’.
Panics, failures and frauds have always been with us. From Tulipmania and the South Sea Bubble to dotcoms, there are always con merchants to spin a yarn; so cheer the days when bankers were hanged for playing fast & loose with our money.
LWHS events are open to all, young or old, members or not, and if you like history, whether recent, ancient or somewhere in between, then you will enjoy our talks. Just £4.00 (or £2.00 if a member), gives access to presentations lasting about an hour, which are followed by tea/coffee, plus biscuits, in the company of like minded individuals.
