Our normal programme of around 50 events a year has been severely curtailed by COVID-19.  Presently we have managed to arrange a small number of visits and trips over the next couple of months and are continuing a series of monthly talks online via Zoom; see below for details.  Also, Bristol Museums service is offering a range of on-line events, some of which are listed here.


Illustrated Talk: 946 and all that – chapters in a village history

2.30pm    07th Aug 2021    Held over Zoom 

Speaker: Gail Boyle, Senior Curator, Archaeology and World Cultures at Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives
Pucklechurch and the surrounding area has a long and rich history.  It is mentioned in the Domesday Book and situated in the heart of what was the royal hunting ground of Kingswood Forest.  According to the Anglo Saxon Chronicle, it was the scene of a royal murder but there is so much more to this village’s history than the death of a king.  From the prehistoric to the present day, this talk will cover a miscellany of the people and places of Pucklechurch.

Cost £5 per household, book through Eventbrite.
