Description

Join us at Widnes library for a fascinating evening with local history Jean Bradburn. Jean worked as a local studies librarian for Halton libraries and following her retirement has pursued this interest and published books about Widnes and Runcorn.

This talk will focus on her book 'Widnes at Work' which covers the varied industries in Widnes throughout the years with stories from those who worked in the varied factories. Jean researched her book by talking to Widnesians about their jobs and collected oral histories which will be shared on the evening. A great evening for anyone who has fond memories of ICI, the Crispy and the Gus!

Books will be available to purchase on the evening.

Tickets are free but donations are greatly received to enable Halton Library Service to continue to deliver high quality events for the community. Tea & coffee are included with the ticket.
