A reminder that the History Society’s guest speaker talk in April is about East Riddlesden Hall. The talk will be held upstairs at Keighley Library on Wednesday 11th April. Doors open at 7pm (use the side door on Albert Street) and the talk starts at 7.30pm. There is an admission charge of £3 (£1 for History Society members), which includes a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit.
The Keighley and District Local History was formed in 2004 to mark the centenary of the town’s Carnegie Library. Some photographs from the early years, taken by then secretary Barbara Klempka have been added to our digital archive on Flickr. Click on the image below to look through the album.

So this year we should also be RAINPROOF, your all welcome to come and hide if it does get as bad as last year, you can browse while your sheltering. We will be selling 2018 Calendars featuring Stanley R Boardman’s work. Do come early before they are all gone.
We have better displays, a tombola, thngss just for fun and there may even be costumes involved.
We are using the show to launch our new Logo and as the pre-launch of a project to involve schools and communities in our Local History, particularly from the 1950s onwards, Come along and find out about it, maybe we can help each other.
