Great Lectures


If you attended our Memories and Memorabilia Day in October 2009 you may have been fortunate enough to see Birmingham-born writer Simon Inglis’ excellent talk based on his book Great Lengths – The Historic Indoor Swimming Pools of Britain (Malavan Media, 2009).

As editor of Played in Britain, English Heritage’s critically acclaimed series of books on the UK’s sports buildings and landscapes, Simon returns to Birmingham this Wednesday, January 12th 2011 (7:30pm) to lecture on the same subject, but with particular reference to the historic importance of Moseley Road Baths, at the January meeting of the Victorian Society. The meeting is open to everyone and the venue is the Council House in Victoria Square (please use main entrance) with a £4 admission charge. It promises to be a highly entertaining and informative evening and one that, not unsurprisingly, the Friends of Moseley Road Baths very much recommend. Several members of our group will be in attendance so if you get along, come and say hello.
