'What They Didn't Teach You in School History' - Stuart Orme

Stuart Orme, curator of the Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon, will join us on Friday 5th July to deliver his talk ‘What they didn’t teach you in school history: a thought provoking & naughty view of the past!’

 

Did you know that one of the first electrical appliances was not exactly designed for use in the kitchen, but in the bedroom…? Fascinating facts in a talk which is not recommended for those who are easily shocked! A humorous look at some bits of history that the Victorians wouldn’t have approved of, as well as challenging our preconceptions about the past and acting as a ‘Horrible Histories’ for adults, posing a few thought provoking questions about the way we look at history.

 

We’re really looking forward to welcoming Stuart to the Old Town Hall for an entertaining evening. 

 

 

Our licensed bar, The Shambles, will be open. All proceeds go towards the Bourne Town Hall renovation project.
