Oliver Cromwell - Royal Executioner or Our Chief of Men

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday 12th March at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley. The speaker is Max Keen with his unique approach to events in British history.

Max’s illustrated talk follows the life of Oliver Cromwell from Cambridgeshire farmer to military general and statesman.

There are heroes and villains of the Civil War with its sieges, political intrigues and Royal ‘events’! Opposing forces fought skirmishes and battles across the Midlands with a final showdown at Worcester in 1651.

Meet Max in his Civil War costumes as he takes us through this turbulent period of political and religious unrest.

This is a ‘dramatic’ evening not to be missed.

As usual visitors are invited to come along – cost �2.
