Overview

Geoff Burch and David Rose

Join popular speakers David Rose and Geoff Burch for a fascinating look at the past of gypsies, travellers and itinerant workers in the local area in days gone by. David and Geoff will focus on the places they made their camps, the work they did harvesting on local farms and market gardens, hop picking and their ways and traditions.

The illustrated talk features vintage photographs from David’s collection and personal family details of the Baker family of which Geoff is a descendant. This event has been rescheduled from Summer 2020.

Please note: Due to easing of social distancing measures, face to face talks currently have a capacity of 45 attendees. This is set at 65% of full capacity to ensure safety for our users. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.
