Talk by Chris Bristow - via Zoom - February 2021

Pershore Civic Society met together via Zoom on the evening of 2nd February 2021 to receive an informative and highly entertaining presentation from Chris Bristow, Civic Society Treasurer on the topic of Otto Edouard Leopold von Bismarck 1815-1898“

The presentation focussed on Bismarck’s role in the unification of modern Germany in 1871 from a diverse collection of states and principalities. Arguably, his achievements continue to have an impact on life today in Germany, the EU and beyond.
We are all looking forward with anticipation towards the publishing of the book about Bismarck that Chris is in the process of writing – maybe 2022 Christmas present?
Copies of Chris’ slides are available upon request as a digital download – as is a video of the entire meeting.
Please contact Chris Bristow if you would like to receive the slides or video.

Talk by David Birtwhistle - via Zoom - December 2020

As most events planned for this winter have had to be postponed, we were lucky to be able to have our first Zoom presentation by local artist David Birtwhistle who in this Part 1 showed a collection of his iconic paintings of many local scenes including Broad Street here in Pershore.

He pointed out that he could always be found in one of his scenes either the man in red in the distance or possibly a cat or even a dog!

Talk by Dennis Williams - Pershore Airfield - February 4th 2020
A fascinating talk presented by Dennis Williams covering the years when both Defford and Pershore (known locally as Throckmorton) airfields were used by the Royal Radar Establishment for flight trials. Both having ceased operations by 1981.
