October Events

Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society begins its new Autumn/Spring programme on Saturday October 7th with a Coffee Morning and Talk in Pembroke Town Hall. Our speaker this month is popular local historian Gareth Mills who will talk about Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII - the woman who forged the Tudor dynasty. A subject of great interest to us here in Pembroke! Perhaps too we will have some update about the progress of the Henry Tudor Centre. Doors will open from 10am for coffee and an opportunity to visit the Museum and Council Chamber, which are situated on the first floor of the Town Hall – a lift is available for disabled access. Following this, at 11am, we assemble in the George Lewis Room for the talk. Everyone is welcome to attend – you do not have to be a member - and entry is free.
Later in the month, on Friday October 20th at 7pm, the Society will be holding a Quiz Night at Foundry House Community Centre, the Commons, Pembroke. Tickets cost £5 and this will include a buffet.
