April. Monday 16th, Village Hall, 7.30pm. BHC’s 4th AGM. Open to BHC Members and Potential Members. A time to review, celebrate and have our say. Short SW Heritage films (4 mins) will be shown on the Glastonbury Iron Age Lake Village and Neolithic Sweet Track. Nice nibbles and bubbly.
May. Thursday, 24th, * Village Hall, 7.30pm. ‘The Romans in Somerset’ a vivid recreation of roman life by seasoned local historian and presenter, John Smith. John will bring items from his collection of roman artefacts. All welcome, visitors £1. Suitable refreshments after – but no dormice. For the Romans, Somerset was both geographically and economically a strategic region. It also provided the best bath house ‘in town’, Aqua Sulis ! * Note change to previous date.
June. Friday, 15th, Village Hall, 7.30pm. ‘Desert Island …. Dates’. Please make a date for this novel and hopefully fun evening. We are looking for up to 8 panellists who are being asked ‘if you were cast away on a desert island alone, what historical date(s) would remain fixed in your memory ?’ The idea is to explore 8 events which the panel believe changed the subsequent course of history whether at the very big or the very local scale. Each panellist has just 5 minutes to make the case for their chosen date(s). Projector-screen/DVD player/ sound system available. Open to all, visitors £1. Strawberries and crème after… oh and fizz ! Please contact secretary to join the panel – 2 have already put their names down. It’ll be fascinating to see what gets selected.
July. Its carnival on Saturday 21st. BHC will ask for a table so we can set out our stall. A chance to meet and greet new and old acquaintances and all sorts of ‘things’ develop out of these meetings.
