Tuesday 18 May
10am – The Smell of Water blog

Read Gavin’s blog about exploring the tabular hills https://teessidepsychogeography.wordpress.com/.../into.../
10am to 11am – The Women’s Football Cup anniversary 1918
In the year that is the 100th anniversary of women being banned from playing football and also the 50th anniversary of that ban being lifted, the editor of the Boro Fanzine, Fly Me To The Moon, local historian Martin Peagam and playwright Ed Waugh discuss how local women embraced football during the First World War and how a packed Ayresome Park hosted a cup final between two women’s teams and then why and how so soon afterwards women were banned by the FA.
Please book on the zoom with Cleveland & Teesside Local History Society https://www.eventbrite.com/.../the-womens-football-cup...

11am to 1pm – Newham Grange Farm: talk, walk, and cream tea
Did you know Newham Grange Farm was mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086 AD)? Records show this area of Cleveland has been farmed for over 900 years, and we know that the Hopper family worked the land at Newham Grange since 1580. To celebrate History Month, we’re offering a talk and walk showing the history of the farm, a presentation from artist Carol Newmarch, and a cream tea to finish (fruit scone with clotted cream and preserve, and a cup of tea).
Cost: £6.50
Book: for more information and to book, visit the Newham Grange website https://newhamgrangefarm.co.uk/.../history-month-talk.../

2pm to 3pm – Cook 250 lecture: Smook near the beach
Phil Philo tells the story of how Captain James Cook arrived at Australia in the Spring of 1770 where he observed ‘smook near the beach’ – a sign of local habitation – and considers how he was received by the indigenous people?
Cost: donations invited
Book: for more information and to book, visit the Tuesday Talks website - https://sotherans.wixsite.com/tuesday-talks/forthcoming-talks

4pm – No Rest for The Wicked

Is anyone registering for our talk on Women's Football at 10am?
Martin Peagam, secretary of the Cleveland & Teesside Local History Society and Robert Nichols, editor of the Middlesbrough FC fanzine Fly Me To The Moon, are speaking at the Local History Month celebrations to commemorate the heroic munitionettes who played football during WW1 and the 100th anniversary of women's football being banned by the FA. We will be joined by playwright Ed Waugh to tell us about the disgraceful, political, decision that was only overturned by the FA in 1971. There is no cost for this excellent session.

Then at 4pm - am sure lots of us have visited Fountains Abbey and perhaps Ripon Cathedral but did you know that the old Workhouse is open to the public along with a Victorian Courtroom and prison? They were all featured on Antiques Roadtrip last Wednesday - this afternoon Richard Taylor is going to tell us all about why we should drive down the A19 and engross ourselves in the past - Eventbrite
