The presentations take place at 7.30pm and are free to attend, although donations are welcome and registration is needed in advance.

On Monday, September 27, the Bromsgrove Society and Bromsgrove Court Leet have teamed up with Richard Shaw from the Battle of Worcester Society. The talk on the Battle of Worcester will commemorate 370 years since the Civil War battle on September 3, 1651.

People are urged to ‘sit back in their armchair whilst Jane takes them on a guided tour around Britain’s iconic railway posters’.
