Talking about the history of Amersham
AMERSHAM Museum has lined up a number of historical themed talks to take place during this spring and summer.
Stan Pretty, director of the successful Amersham Martyrs play, will kick off with the first talk on Thursday, April 28 at 8pm at the Market Hall.
The play, which was a sell-out last month, focussed on the tale of seven martyrs from 16th century Amersham.
Mr Pretty, who devised and directed the play, and was given an MBE in 2004, will talk about how the play came about and the historical research that has gone into making the play.
Another this season include one by Monica Weller, who will talk about her true crime book which details the solving of the murder of Amersham GP Helen Davidson, who was killed in dense woodland in 1966.
Rounding off the season, Julian Hunt will be delivering a talk on the history of Amersham on Thursday, August 25 at the Drake Hall in Amersham Community Centre.
The talks will cover some of the highlights of Amersham’s history, and together with a special 25 years exhibition currently on display at the museum, celebrates the museum’s silver jubilee year.
All talks are priced at £10 per person, and £8 for Friends of Amersham Museum.
