Our lecture season runs from October to April, with lectures being held in the Anna McDowell Garden Room at Gold Hill Museum on the first Tuesday afternoon of each month. The exception is the Teulon Porter Memorial Lecture, which starts the season and is held in the evening at Shaftesbury Town Hall. Noel Teulon Porter was a notable Cambridge archaeologist and instrumental in founding The Shaftesbury & District Historical Society in 1946.
PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE FROM THE PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED PROGRAMME FOR TUESDAY 04 DECEMBER when Sir John Stuttard will launch his brand new book on John Rutter (1796-1851) The Turbulent Quaker of Shaftesbury. As there will be a talk, a reception and an opportunity to buy the book at a discount, the charge for non-members on this occasion will be £6. There is no charge for members.
Lectures are free to members, while visitors may pay £3 at the door (£5 for the Teulon Porter). To reserve a seat, non-members are advised to contact email@example.com
Proposals for lectures to the Society on suitable historical subjects are welcome, and may also be made via firstname.lastname@example.org
