The talks the Woolton Society are presenting for 2020 begin in February with an afternoon talk at St Mary's Church Hall, when Anna Alexander will be in costume to speak to us about Speke Hall. This will be at 3:00pm on Thursday 20th February.

The first of our regular meetings is on Wednesday 18th March at 7:30 , with Marie Passey telling us about Duke Street.

Following this, on Wednesday 15th April, Elaine Allen will be presenting "The Little Red Box".

The Spring season closes with a talk from Rob Kirby on the Dambusters, on May 20th.

We  will be having a Quiz and social evening on June 17th to allow members more opportunities to interact with the society, and following the talk last year, our traditional summer outing will be a trip to the Daniel Adamson steam tug. Further details to follow.

The Autumn season will commence on 16th September with a talk on the Rainhill trials by Chris Tigwell.

This will be followed on 15th October by an afternoon talk at 3:00 in St Mary's Church Hall from Stephen Guy on Forgotten Liverpool Aristocracy and Merchants.

The year concludes with the AGM on November 18th at St Mary's Church Hall, which is for members only.
