  • Norfolk Black History Month – Young Gifted and Black
    Norfolk Black History Month returns in October with the theme, Young Gifted and Black, celebrating youth, culture and identity. There are more than 80 events across the county featuring a packed programme of art, literature, film, music, theatre, talks, exhibitions and workshops.

  • Anglian Annals by Peter Sargent
    Anglian Annals, Norwich writer Peter Sargent's new East Anglian history book was launched at Jarrold Book Department Norwich on Saturday, September 21, along with Peter Sargent's Moments in Time, a box set featuring his three local history books, A Moment in Time (2017), A Place in History (2018) and Anglian Annals.
     
    Peter Sargent presents 50 more short history stories, in Anglian Annals, which both entertain and inform. Peter explained his research and selection process: "Ideas come to me for stories from all sorts of sources. It can be an item on the news, a random conversation, often a reference in a book or film. In the case of Sir John Hawkwood, who features in Anglian Annals, I came across him while planning a trip to Florence. When I discovered he was born in Essex and was a celebrated mercenary soldier, I decided he had to go in the book. Hawkwood's impressively large memorial is indeed in the Florence Duomo, and it was worth queuing up to get in and see it.”
    "There are a lot of different sources of information, from the internet to works of history,” continued Peter. “I find the main Norwich library in the Forum very useful for original material, and also like to head out in search of obscure memorials in churches and suchlike throughout the region.”
