Lecture: History of Shops in Barnards Green by Catherine Banks and Faith Renger
This illustrated talk will look at the gentle transformation of agricultural fields into a small self-sufficient commercial centre over a period of 50 years. Barnards Green was a brand new village and it attracted many small business men and women who saw a niche in offering the local population a range of grocery shops, drapers, newsagents, dairy outlets, bakeries, hairdressers and butchers.There was even an umbrella hospital and a car dealer that operated next door to a coach maker.
All Winter Lectures are held at Christchurch Hall in Avenue Road, Great Malvern, unless otherwise stated.
Lectures begin at 7.30 and admission is free to Friends of Malvern Museum or £2 for visitors.
Refreshments are served at the end of the evening for a small charge.
