Our speaker is Nigel Brazier, a local Clent Lad. His talk , All Bar the Sqael.’  (not a spelling mistake. A bit of Black Country speak that translates as Squeal !) Nigel will share his family stories with us, four generations of his family running a Black Country Cook Shop. Bound to be some right tales in there!!

Thursday 19th May

On Thursday 19th May we will be welcoming Simon Briercliffe with his talk on The Black Country Living Museum. It will be especially interesting to hear news from Simon of the latest developments at the museum  as we have a trip planned for members (and guests) to the museum in June. Further details of the trip will be given at our meetings.

Simon also has a ten minute video talk on ‘The Irish Language in the  Black Country.’ which can be accessed through the BALH  – British Association Local History website. Well worth a look at what the BALH have to offer.


Looking on to the later half of the year we have something for those of us with a sweet tooth.
