East Preston & Kingston Preservation Society Monthly Meeting (Conservative Hall, Sea Road, East Preston BN16 1JN)

This event will take place subject to confirmation re COVID 19 restrictions.
Hilaire Belloc (1870 – 1953) was a prolific and sometimes controversial writer and journalist who developed a deep affection for the Sussex country people, their customs, traditions, dialect and songs. Lucy Broadwood was an influential folk song collector who in 1893 published a collection which, according to Vaughan Williams, was the “starting point of the modern folk song movement”. Chris Hare, Worthing writer and historian, has been leading a project to research the life and times of both Belloc and Broadwood, to culminate in the production of a book and a CD. Chris’s talk will include his live rendition of occasional songs. All welcome, subject to space. Preservation Society members free; visitors £3, payable at the door.

Ferring in the 20th Century – an Illustrated Talk (John de Bohun Room, Woodlands Centre, Woodlands Avenue, Rustington)

This event will take place subject to confirmation re COVID 19 restrictions.
From a population of around 250 in the 19th century and until 1918, Ferring expanded to nearly 800 people by 1931, with bungalow owners from London outnumbering the agricultural families who had previously been the main inhabitants. By 1939, the population of the parish exceeded 1500 and it has continued to grow ever since. Ed Miller, secretary of the Ferring History Group, published his book 'The Day Before Yesterday – Ferring in the 20th Century' in 2019 and his illustrated talk describes how Ferring changed from a farming community, into a select residential resort, and then a suburb of Worthing. All are welcome at this talk. Heritage Association members pay £1, visitors £3, payable at the door.

Glamorous Nights – an illustrated talk with music (John de Bohun Room, Woodlands Centre, Woodlands Avenue, Rustington)

This event will take place subject to confirmation re COVID 19 restrictions.
Another in the series of Ian Gledhill’s illustrated talks with music, exploring English musical theatre. Under the influence of imported American shows in the 1920s and 1930s, traditional operetta declined, and English musical theatre evolved from musical comedies such as “Chu Chin Chow” to the romantic musicals of Ivor Novello. This change is illustrated with many musical examples from shows of the period. All are welcome at this talk. Heritage Association members pay £1 for entry, visitors £3, payable at the door.
