Sussex Scrapbooks 2

by Chris Horlock

Monday 14th October

Back by popular demand after delighting us with his eclectic and fascinating Sussex Scrapbook 1, Chris Horlock will present Sussex Scrapbook 2, the next instalment. Once again he will give us a broad mix of topics including anecdotes about famous people connected with Sussex, details of historic buildings and landmarks, local traditions and folklore, ghost stories, quaint ‘health cures’, plus all sorts of curious legends, tales and mysteries. The talk is fully illustrated, mostly with historic prints and pictures, showing the long-gone Sussex of yesteryear.

Chris is a regular contributor to Sussex Life magazine, has written 7 books on the history of Brighton, appeared on TV several times and frequently travels across Sussex, visiting its towns and villages, researching the history and heritage of the county.
