The talk will take place at Grimsby Central library, from 1pm to 3pm. This is a free event, but as places are limited, please book yours by calling (01472) 323628, or email [email protected] or [email protected].

The Village Voices season is a series of projects aimed at getting more people involved in exploring the local history, customs and traditions that are important to them. The season has been made possible through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
