If you’re under pension age, it will be a chance to find out what life was like for your parents or your granny – when Monday was always washday, a holiday a short trip to the seaside and shopping was done, ration book in hand. Memories of early television, the cinema, Christmas and childhood games will be shared.
Speaker, Andrew Clark of Summerhill Books will ditch the PowerPoint but bring along familiar and unfamiliar objects such as a poss stick, flat iron, stone hot water bottle, cobbler’s last and old toys and games.
