Ketyn Jepson and Brenda from Culture Club

Our Culture Club is an exciting monthly scheme that allows members to meet and socialise while expanding their interest base through visiting museums, historical sites and local points of interest.

February 28, 2-4pm: Loving our libraries June Wentland’s work involves her in mysteries, romance and history – in book form that is! She’ll tell us about some of the interesting work she does for B&NES Library Service, which includes the creation of photographic packs on themes of (particularly local) historic interest. One of the recent packs (which June will bring to share with us) is about Bath’s important and often forgotten connection with the Suffragette movement.
