"Know Your Sheffield" - local history course

Recommended Posts

Robin Fielder and myself are job-sharing the long-established Know Your Sheffield course run by WEA in the city. Run in weekly sessions of two hours the first term starts in September 2017 (poster attached) and will take folks up to the early C19th. The focus tends to be on industrial, social history and housing conditions. In the spring the plan is to cover the period up to the mid-C20th. Then in the summer term we run a series of weekly walks in and around Sheffield - city centre, Kelham Island, Totley and the Edward Carpenter/radicals, middle-class and working- class housing conditions (contrasting The Crofts with Ranmoor for example), etc. If interested the sessions are 5.45-7.45pm at The Circle (VAS building) off Division Street on Tuesdays or  2-4pm at St Oswalds Crypt off Abbeydale Road on Thursdays (ignore the bit that says mornings - its afternoons). The courses are usually provided free for people on JSA and some other benefits. See below for details or email Robin for more information. 59ad1cb584cc6_localhistorycourse-publicity.thumb.jpg.3a77f89d37a7018a38ca11a582209876.jpg
