Future Society Events
Annual Lecture, followed by Buffet - 13th October 2021, 7pm
Our annual lecture and buffet will be at Whirlowbrook Hall, Ecclesall Road South, Sheffield.
Our speaker is David Price. He is a former senior civil servant and has written two books on local history - 'Sheffield Troublemakers ' (about local radicals) and 'Welcome to Sheffield - A Migration History.' The latter reflects his interest in the position of asylum seekers and other migrants.
In this illustrated talk on 'How Sheffield became a cosmopolitan city', he will describe how, right up to 1945, Sheffield remained a very English city but since then people have come here from every corner of the world. He will discuss how well Sheffield, the UK's first 'City of Sanctuary', has coped with this profound change to its culture.
As usual there will be time for a good discussion following the talk.
Lunch, following optional walk - 23rd October 2021
As usual we will have the options of a short walk or a longer walk, or just come along for lunch.
