A year in the life of Arthur James Purfield (Battle of Loos talk) @ Baldock Arts & Heritage Centre, Old Town Hall, High Street SG7 6AR
May 8 @ 6:30 pm

 

September 1915 saw the start of one of the greatest battles of the First World War – the Battle of Loos.

Jim Purfield enlisted in Hitchin in September 1914 and returned to his native Kent to join his local battalion. He kept a daily diary for the next year, and from this, his Battalion records and official war records, we tell the story of his year which included the decimation of his battalion at Loos

In this illustrated talk we follow the personal record of this young man, who, along with thousands of others, was drawn into the hell of that war.

Venue open at 6:30pm, talk starts at 7pm

Solar Viewing @ The White Lion Baldock High Street
May 19 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

We have all looked up at the night sky and marvelled at the stars and the moon swirling above us. Some of us may have used binoculars or a telescope to look in more detail.

But how many of us have looked at the sun?

Not very many………..Why?

Well, it’s very bright, hurts your eyes, and if you put a lens in the way will burn and start fires! It’s dangerous!

Letchworth and District Astronomical Society (LDAS) in conjunction with The Baldock Festival have organised a solar viewing day to change this!

Come along between12:00 and 16:00 when there will be specialist equipment and members of LDAS available to let you look at the sun safely and join the small group of people who have observed the sun!
