Mayhem & Green Cheese

by John Padwick

The Parks of Kettering's North End

by Ian Addis

Lunchtime Talk

Friday 20 October, 1 - 2pm

Often overshadowed by Wicksteed Park, Kettering's North and Pleasure parks have less familiar but equally fascinating histories. This is their story in words and pictures.

The Great War: Magic Lantern Slides

Kevin Varty

Lunchtime Talk

Friday 17 November

This Magic Lantern presentation shows how illustrations of the Great War, seen by the Home Front, were heavily censored due to the Defence of the Realm Act. This often led to a version of events that was far from the truth. Included in the presentation is a rare selection of uncensored American slides which show a different side to the story. The glass slides shown are all original WW1 items.

Dad's Army

Steve Dimmer

Lunchtime Talk

Friday 10 December

Possibly the most loved comedy series of all time, the Dad's Army story is traced from its initial concept and lukewarm first reception, to its eventual place as a constantly hilarious sitcom with an audience of 28millions. This talk celebrates the timeless comedy, and whatever you do DON'T PANIC!
