This is a change from our originally programme in which we hoped to show DVDs created from 1950s cine film. However, due to the content and some poor quality images,  some editing is needed. We hope to be in a position to show these at a later date.

Our thanks to David for being available at short notice.


St Leonard’s Community Centre, Bramcote Lane, Wollaton, 7.30pm

Wollaton Historical & Conservation Society

The Society exists to protect and enhance the principal Conservation Areas which include the Village core and Wollaton Park. In order to do that the Society encourages historic research and seeks to encourage people living in all parts of Wollaton and the Park to learn more about the history of the area and thereby to help ensure its survival and conservation.

In order to achieve that, the Society holds a number of talks on local history during winter months and, in the summer, in addition to opening the Dovecote Museum, provides a number of guided walks around the area of greater Wollaton and visits to other historical sites of interest.

INDOOR MEETINGS with a guest speaker, on the 4th Wednesday of the month September to April (not December), 7.30pm at St Leonard's Community Centre, Bramote Lane, Wollaton (opposite Wollaton Library) NG8 2ND Free for Society members, £2 visitors.
