History Group 2 “All the Eights” Thursday afternoon, 2:00 to 3:00 Liberal Hall Contact the leader

New for this year, a series of 7 talks to commemorate the events of 6 of the years ending in “8” since 1918 and a 75th anniversary of another.


Yes, we all know the importance of 1918 (our starting point) but even that year has some hidden centenaries, But we’ll also look at the years 1928, 1938, 1948, 1958 and 1968 plus our “rogue” year of 1943.


Just to whet your appetite (and no googling) can

you match the zoot suit, sliced bread, Hot Wheels cars, the nylon toothbrush, the Land Rover, Lego and the “sprung door toaster” to the correct year?
