Talks about the history of Derby and of Hardwick Hall… and some AGMs

This is just a reminder that the Derbyshire Record Society and the Derbyshire Victoria County History Trust are holding their Annual General Meetings at the Imperial Rooms in Matlock this coming Saturday. The Record Society’s AGM will be at 10.30am (tea and coffee available from 9.30) and the VCH Trust’s AGM will be in the afternoon. After the first meeting there will be a talk by the historian Richard Clark, to accompany the launch of his new monograph on the government of Derby in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Then lunch (bring a fiver if you aren’t a member of either organisation – you can use it either to pay for your lunch or to join the DRS for a year and get lunch for nothing). Straight after the second meeting, two senior curatorial staff from the National Trust will be talking about their new book on Hardwick Hall. You can also expect to see displays of material from some local history societies.

The Imperial Rooms are on Imperial Road, Matlock DE4 3NL. It’s just off Bank Road at the foot of the hill, near Wilkinson’s. There is parking nearby and it’s a short walk from the railway and bus stations.
