The North Staffordshire Heritage Group is running a special 12th Annual Archive Day School on cultural history, “The Other Side of the Olympics: Culture in Staffordshire’s Past”…

The venue for this event is The Kingston Centre, Fairway, Stafford, on Saturday 26 February 2011 (10am – 4pm). Tickets cost £12, to include lunch and refreshments. Booking in advance only, from Staffordshire Record Office.
