The subject is a mix of material from several of my books, and in many ways represents my personal fascination for local history. I worked in Leicester for many years, and spent many lunch breaks wandering round the back streets exploring abandoned buildings and hidden alleys, as well as listening to the stories and memories of the people in the area.
There are amazing stories to be told about many of Leicester's buildings, of the men and women who occupied them, and of what may lie just beneath the surface.
All proceeds from my talk will go to the library which is now independently managed and operated. Admission will be £5.00 including refresments. Tickets are on sale at the library which is open at the following times:
Monday: 2 – 6pm
Friday: 9-5pm (Closed 1-2pm)
My talk will be illustrated by a collection of photographs taken and collected over many years, some of which will definitely surprise you! I look forward to meeting you on the day!
