Annual Dinner 2020

Article Written:

Booking is now open for the Society Annual Dinner 2020 on 28th March.  We are delighted to announce our guest speakers this year: Lin Coghlan and Shaun McKenna, co-writers of the BBC Radio 4 11-part adaptation of Bennett’s Five Towns novels, China Towns.  The series was reviewed (part-way through) in the Spring 2019 edition of the Newsletter and an interview with the authors was featured in the Autumn edition of that year.  The series can be accessed online at Internet Archive and is also available as an audio download.

We look forward to welcoming our guest speakers, Society members and other guests to the congenial surroundings of Potbank (the Spode Works) in Stoke-on-Trent.  Further details and application form here: Annual Dinner 2020
