Hagley Historical & Field Society

On 7 June Dr Gillian White makes a welcome return presenting ‘Henry VIII and the Field of Cloth of Gold’. In June 1520, the King of France and the King of England met in a field outside Calais to celebrate the treaty of Universal Peace. Both Kings were young, athletic, cultured and ruthlessly ambitious. Even though a treaty to avoid war had been agreed, each King tried to outshine the other with style, with extravagance and luxury becoming the new battlefield. The magnificence was captured in a famous painting now at Hampton Court.

Join us and find out which King won a ‘friendly’ wrestling match, and how long would the ‘Universal’ peace with France last?

On 5 July we welcome Paul Timmins from the Clent History Society presenting ‘Clent Village: A Brief Look Back (Part 1). The talk promises to be interesting for anyone familiar with Clent and wanting to spot the history hidden around us. The talk includes many pictures from the Society’s archive and photos taken by Paul over a period of years, documenting changes in the village and surrounding area.

Visitors are most welcome at all our events.
