Our next talk will be held on Tuesday 9th April at 7pm in Pontefract Town Hall(Nelson Room).

The talk, entitled “The Kingdom of Alms: A History of the Almshouses of Pontefract”, will be given by Eric Jackson.

This facinating talk covers the establishment of Almshouses post-conquest; first as religious institutions and then post reformation as an expression of  philanthropy, both locally and nationwide, right up to the present day.

Admission is £2 for members and £4 for non-members, payable on the door, and includes light refreshments.
