20th February 2020

Phil Clayton

"Curious Cuts"

We have a first for the Society this time, a virtual presentation by Phil Clayton, well known to us from his entertainment in the past.  He has got together with some friends, including contributions from SonACS members  David 'Dusty' Miller along with Dave Illingworth, as well as Brian Ward to put together the story of the beginnings of the BCN network.  
The story is told in words and music along with archive sources in a presentation on DVD. It's a different slant on how to present the history of this particular bit of canal building and fills in some of the gaps in an interesting and entertaining way.
The DVD is professionally produced and well worth seeing, so do come along and have an enjoyable social evening with kindred spirits.

THE MEETINGS

Our meetings are on the third Thursday of the month at "The Navigation" in Wootton Wawen, starting at 7:30pm.

Many members have a meal in the pub beforehand, meeting at 6:00pm.
If you want to meet at 'The Navigation' for a meal beforehand from 6:00pm, please either e-mail Alasdair Lawrance, or phone (01564) 783766

It is an excellent pub, and we're quite lucky to have it for our meetings.

To cover speaker expenses, we have a £1 per ticket raffle at the meetings, with the prize of a bottle of wine. Although coffee is no longer provided in the interval, it is available at the bar along with other drinks.


 

From time to time the Society also arranges other Events
