Future appearances

Monday 3 April 2017, 4:00pm
The Launch of The Time Traveller's Guide to Restoration Britain
This will be part of an afternoon of three talks held under the auspices of the Friends of Devon's Archives (FoDA) at Devon Heritage Centre, Sowton, Exeter. The first talk, on historical images of the coastline by Prof Robin McInnes, starts at 1:30. This will be followed by a demonstration on how to care for your archives at home, by Deborah Phillips, chief conservator at Devon Heritage Centre. My talk is at 4:00 pm, after the tea break, and will go on for an hour, followed by questions and a signing session. Copies of the book will be on sale, even though this will be three days in advance of publication. If you are a member of FoDA or the Devon History Society, admission is free, but please book a seat in advance. Space is limited to a strict maximum of 100 for the afternoon. If you are not a member of either organisation, the fee is £4 for the whole afternoon - and you'll similarly need book a place in advance by registering with the Secretary of FoDA, Mr Stuart Tyler. He may be contacted at Devon Heritage Centre by telephone (01392 384253) or by emailing Stuart.Tyler@swheritage.org.uk.
