Join local historian John Loosley at Cirencester’s Corinium Museum later this month when he hosts a talk on the historic almshouses of Gloucestershire.

The evening talk takes places at the Park Street venue on Thursday January 31st, and will focus on Gloucestershire’s many interesting almshouses, which date from the 12th century through to Victorian times.

John Loosley will explore the origins of these almshouses, the people who founded them and the rules and regulations the almspeople had to obey. Many of the almshouses – some of which are still in use today – are particularly fine architectural examples of their period.

‘Gloucestershire’s Almshouses’ is part of a series of evening lectures taking place at the Corinium Museum. It runs from 7pm–9pm, although finish times may vary because of time for questions.

Booking is essential and tickets for the event cost £5. Annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum receive a 10% discount.

Please contact Helen Arbon at the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 or email [email protected] to book a place or to find out about other events.
