Local History . . . Live! 2014 will be held on Saturday 18 October in the National Waterfront Museum.
All organisations with an interest in local history are welcome to exhibit at the free event, the fourth in the increasingly successful LHL! series.
This year, in addition to the many exhibitors, we have a number of other attractions.
- 60 Second Show and Tell – bring along your mystery objects to baffle the Museum curators!
- Crane Drivin’ Music – folk music with a Swansea theme.
- Waterwheel Singers – the Aberdulais Choir.
Participation and entry is free.
Swansea HA’s regular monthly event at 1100 on 18 October is Hitler, Stalin and Gareth Jones, a special screening of the award winning film documenting the tragic short life and mysterious death of Gareth Jones, an investigative journalist for the Western Mail.
‘A dense, powerful, moving film’ The Guardian.
The film will be followed by a talk by Arnold Rosen about the life of Gareth Jones, born in Barry in 1905. Jones was the Foreign Affairs Advisor to Lloyd-George in 1930 whose writings exposed a famished Russia.
