The Great VIRTUAL Nottinghamshire Local History Fair 2021

FREE Online Saturday 1 May – Monday 31 May

INSPIRE has been proud to present their annual Local History Fair since 2013, bringing local groups together to celebrate the variety of heritage activity in Nottinghamshire. This year the celebration will be digital, featuring a selection of photographs, videos, talks and presentations from groups and organisations from all over the county. The highlight will be a live, online interview with author, broadcaster, curator and former Nottinghamshire resident Lucy Worsley..


11am / Saturday 15 May

£5 Booking essential

Lucy Worsley grew up in West Bridgford and was possibly history’s most assiduous volunteer ever at West Bridgford Library, where she spent all her childhood Saturdays. She went on to study history, researching a PhD thesis about Nottingham Castle and Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, before making her career in London working in heritage and history television.

Below is a list of participants in the Great Nottinghamshire Virtual Local History Fair. The participants and their pages/content can be found on the INSIRE web page from 1 May – 31 May:

Throughout the month, INSPIRE will be sharing content from most of these groups on the Inspire Nottinghamshire Libraries Facebook page @NottsLibraries
