Roger Dixon is the next speaker at next meeting of Banbridge Historical Society, which will take place in The Old Town Hall, Banbridge on Thursday 3rd. March beginning at 7.30 pm.

His topic is ‘Victorian/Edwardian Landed Gentry v Middle Class.’ Roger gave a talk to Banbridge Historical Society about the landed gentry last year.

A spokesperson said: “What he said was so amusing and so intriguing that the audience wanted more, and invited him back! He had us laughing so hard one lady said afterwards she ‘nearly fell off her chair’ and I personally took about a week to recover!

“I kept remembering things he had said and giggling, or smiling, at inappropriate times. As a result this information comes with a health warning and, if you think you are strong enough to withstand the exercise caused by hearty laughter, this evening is one to be regarded as a ‘must’.”

Visitors are welcome. Entrance £3 including light refreshments.
