Summer is over and Pembroke and Monkton Local History Society looks forward to starting its autumn programme of talks!

The Autumn/Spring programme begins on Saturday, October 7 with a Coffee Morning and Talk in Pembroke Town Hall. 

Speaker this month is popular, local historian Gareth Mills who will talk about Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII - the woman who forged the Tudor dynasty; a subject of great interest to anyone in Pembroke! Perhaps too there may be some update on the progress of the Henry Tudor Centre.

Doors open at 10am for coffee and an opportunity to visit the Museum and Council Chamber, which are situated on the first floor of the Town Hall – a lift is available for disabled access.  Following this, at 11am, assemble in the George Lewis Room for the talk. 

The Society generally meets on the first Saturday morning of the month in Pembroke Town Hall, October to May and arranges an interesting programme of heritage themed talks. Everyone is welcome to attend – you do not have to be a member - and entry is free. Costs are covered by the coffee morning and also raffle.
