All the Fun of the Fair: Greenham Common Over The Years

To many people the name 'Greenham Common' conjures up an image of women-only peace camps, protests against cruise missiles and conflict with the police, but behind this lies a much longer and more varied history.

Eminent local author and historian, Penny Stokes, will describe the many dramas which have taken place on the common: from Redcoat musters to refugee housing, golf to flider warfare, furze-gathering to filming, and bare-knuckle prize-fighting to bomb storage.  Copies of Penny's latest book The Common Good: The Story of Greenham Common wil be available to purchase, which she will be pleased to sign for you.

Tickets:  £5 non-members or £4 members per talk.  This includes tea or coffee and cake.
