Whaley Bridge

This slide show presentation takes the traveller along the Hope Valley Line through the Peak District on a 20 mile railway journey from Sheffield to Edale (Cowburn Tunnel).  Breathtaking scenery is passed which inspired Britain’s first National Park.  Using recently taken slides, this show will include historical information, a few poetry readings and many laughs along the way!  Sadly Stephen’s faithful German Shepherd dog Wrawby passed away in October 2017, but in words and pictures,  his memory lives on and this presentation is no exception.  From luscious landscapes and moorland views to riverside walks and tea room trails, all four seasons will feature, with the aim and challenge of capturing the route in a scenic artistic composition.  Please take your seat for The Hope Valley Line.

This is a compelling and hugely important film of the American historian Deborah Lipstadt’s defence of her critique of holocaust denial.  Written by David Hare and starring Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall, the film (2016, directed by Mick Jackson) explores the libel case brought by David Irving against Lipstadt and Penguin Books.  Based on Lipstadt’s book about the case, Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, the film explores vital questions of historical knowledge.  We will consider the film adaptation, its making and issues it raises about historical fact and interpretation.

‘Man is wolf to man’ in the Tudor Court as personal desires intersect with politics and religion.  The King needs a male heir and so wants to annul his twenty year marriage in order to marry Anne Boleyn.  The lowly-born Thomas Cromwell is given the task of making this possible, despite opposition from the papacy and the political establishment.  How he sets about doing this re-shapes England.

 

It would be advantageous, but not essential, to have read Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall (2009)
