Our next event is on Wednesday 12th December, at 7.30 in the LW Parish Room, Church Road, when local historian Kate Jewel will enthrall us with her talk Bonfires and Bells - Rituals and Festivals in the Medieval Landscape, a subject trustees believe will be perfect for the yule tide period.
Kate was born and grew up in Suffolk. In 2002 she was awarded an MA in Medieval Studies from the UEA, focussing on medieval drama and 16th century theatre in Walsham-le-Willows. She has since received a PhD from the UEA after studying the festive culture of pre-Reformation rural Suffolk. She now teaches for the Suffolk Record Office and the WEA.
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.
