This work explores the links with the former monasteries at Bolton Abbey and Sawley.

Before the talk, the children of Long Preston School will perform their version of the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle, which was first staged last July as part of the visit to the school by the Kings Men from King’s College, Cambridge Richard Moone, the last prior of Bolton Priory who features in the rhyme, came from Long Preston.

The talk will start at 7.30pm and entrance is £2 for members and £3 for non-members, which includes refreshments.
