Quorn Local History Group - Next Meeting

Lacemakers and Luddites - A talk by Tony Jarram

Date: Monday 26th February 2018 - 7.00pm
Venue: St Bartholomew’s Church, Quorn.

The invention of a machine to replicate handmade lace took over 200 years to evolve. Its arrival brought about great changes. The key elements happened right here on our doorstep in Loughborough, Nottingham and their environs. The story is a tale of genius, conflict and migration of the people involved. The talk will involve artefacts that will help bring the story to life.

All are welcome - Members £2.00, Visitors £4.00, coffee, tea and biscuits included.

Quorn Local History Group usually meets on the fourth Monday of each month in St. Bartholomew’s Church, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. A warm welcome is assured and you are free to come as a visitor if you wish. Find out more about the Quorn Local History Group on our village website.
