The Norman Conquest

5th October Starts 19.30

The Battle of Hastings was fought on 14 October 1066. 950 years later it is time to reassess the Norman Conquest and its impact on Britain’s culture and history down to the present day. Was the Norman Conquest as all encompassing as the traditional account has it, or have historians been misled by the very solid stone buildings of Norman cathedrals and Norman castles which have masked the essential continuity in English society and culture over the 11th century? An entertaining and informative talk by popular historian and speaker Rupert Matthews.

Film Screening: The Battle of the Somme

13th to 18th October at 11am 2pm or 5pm

A special screening to mark one hundred years since one of the bloodiest battles of the First World War. Shot and screened in 1916, this UNESCO listed film was the first feature length documentary about war. Upon release it was watched by around 20 million people, nearly half of Britain’s population, hoping to see a loved-one captured on film. A century later this unique footage, now in the care of Imperial War Museums, is being shown to audiences around the world with a specially commissioned orchestral soundtrack composed by Laura Rossi.
