Bramhall Group Events
- June 2019
From 13 June 2019 19:30 until 13 June 2019 21:30Speaker Steve Cliffe has promoted heritage within the Borough for decades, particularly through the Stockport Heritage magazine, which ran for 97 issues from 1987 to 2017. The fight to save Staircase House and establish its award-winning museum featured prominently in that worthy and worthwhile journey.
- July 2019
On 25 July 2019This year's Group visit will be to the Blackden Trust. It's principally a tour of the home of Alan Garner, author of 'The Owl Service', the 1967 fantasy novel for young adults. Being close to Jodrell Bank, the day out offers the opportunity of also visiting the nearby Radio Telescope and Arboretum. Please note that the date, Thursday 25th July, is a fortnight after what would be the usual day of the month for our meeting. More details to follow
- August 2019
From 08 August 2019 19:30 until 08 August 2019 21:30In 1863, Stockport warehouseman William John Battersby refused to change the date of his wedding, a decision that ultimately cost him his job. He could never have guessed that this would be a pivotal moment, not just in his life, but ultimately in the history of the British hat industry. This evening Rupert Battersby will be talking us through the history of the family business.
- September 2019
From 12 September 2019 19:30 until 12 September 2019 21:30The AGM will be followed by a light-hearted talk from David Guyton, making a welcome return, about findings in the graveyard! This evening the Bramhall Group will be celebrating our 20th birthday.
