    Talk: The History of Selly Manor, Bournville

    7:30 pmvia Zoom

    A rare opportunity to have this zoom presentation by Daniel Callicott, Selly Manor Museum Manager.

    Discover the history of the building from its medieval origins to the incredible story of how it was saved from demolition and moved to Bournville in the early 20th century. Learn about the former residents and owners, from widower Phylis Setterford in 1608 to the involvement of the Cadbury family in the saving of this building. We will also examine the story of how Bournville came to be and how Selly Manor became an important focal point of the village, through a talk which is packed full of rare archival photographs and images. Plus we'll pick out some of the highlights of the museum collection which was collected by Laurence Cadbury in the 1920s and 30s.

    Talk: Deborah Overton - ‘2 Abbots, 4 Manors & 2 Parishes’

    7 for 7.30pmSt. Andrews Hall, Pershore

    We hope to return to ‘in-person’ Winter Talks with Deborah Overton from the Worcestershire Historic Environment and Archaeological Service, talking about the development of Pershore’s town over the centuries.

    Using the archaeology and various excavations throughout the town and its history, Deborah looks at the development of Pershore as a settlement from the Iron Age onwards with a focus on the medieval and post medieval town. Deborah puts everything into context, looking at our history from a different angle than the background we think we know.

    This event will of course, depend on the local situation with regard to COVID19

    Admission to include a drink  £5 (members) (under 21 free); £7 ( visitors)
