The demon drink: a history of pubs in South Bank

 

fullsizeoutput_4ddDid the Romans or the Anglo-Saxons nip out of York for a pint in the South Bank area?

What are the earliest records we have of booze, boozers and boozing in that area and how does what we have now look compared to what we had say fifty or a hundred years ago?

These questions and some others form the basis of a brief look by one of our members, Rob Stay, at two millennia of the selling, drinking and making of alcoholic drinks in and around South Bank.

His illustrated talk is on Friday 10th May at 7.30pm at Clements Hall.

You can support our History Group by becoming a member for a small sum of £5 for the year, which gives you reduced entry (£1) to talks. Non members are also very welcome, at a cost of £3 on the door.

All meetings take place at Clements Hall in Nunthorpe Road, York, starting at 7.30pm (the summer historical walk usually starts from the Hall).

There are a small number of free parking spaces near Clements Hall. It is also easily accessible from the station (10 minutes on foot) and by buses stopping in Blossom Street (walk along Moss Street opposite the Everyman Cinema).
