On Sunday 7th May 2017 INSPIRE on behalf on Nottinghamshire County Council will be hosting its fifth annual Local History Fair at Mansfield Central Library between 11:am and 3:00pm.

It will build on the success of our previous Local History Fairs, where local history societies and heritage groups from across the county converged on Mansfield, and were joined by children’s activities and demonstrations of local crafts such as spinning and lace making. We aim to make the Local History Fair a real family day out and were delighted that our last event attracted just over 400 people.
