The 22nd series of True’s Talks at the True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum is set to resume.
Discussions cover a variety of local history topics, from the Sandringham Royal Family to Thomas Nashe and Tudor East Anglia and Lost King’s Lynn 1850-2000.
These lectures are a must-see for anyone interested in local history and speakers will also explore The Strange musical family, the pilgrimage to Walsingham and Lynn’s Clifton House.
Every Thursday at 1 p.m. from September 2 to November 18, the museum organizes free conferences but donations are welcome. Due to the reduced capacity, places are limited and reservations for discussions will open on Tuesday August 10.
Deputy Director Rebecca Rees said: “Our interviews have always been incredibly popular and fill up quickly. Due to ongoing security measures, we are maintaining a reduced capacity in our education room where discussions take place.
“This series is longer than usual, as we rescheduled four interviews that were to take place earlier this year. We hope people enjoy the variety of topics in this series. “
The lecture program is part of a series of events related to the museum’s Pat Midgley Research Center that received Heritage Lottery funding in 2015.
True’s Yard’s facilities for local and family history research include a reference library, archive rooms, reading room, and the city’s only sound archive.
