To many people the name 'Greenham Common' conjures up an image of women-only peace camps, protests against cruise missiles and conflict with the police, but behind this lies a much longer and more varied history.
Eminent local author and historian, Penny Stokes, will describe the many dramas which have taken place on the common: from Redcoat musters to refugee housing, golf to flider warfare, furze-gathering to filming, and bare-knuckle prize-fighting to bomb storage. Copies of Penny's latest book The Common Good: The Story of Greenham Common wil be available to purchase, which she will be pleased to sign for you.
Tickets: £5 non-members or £4 members per talk. This includes tea or coffee and cake.
