Black market Britain, Beryl Bainbridge and a vocal pi

Monday saw our first event at Betty's in York - a talk on the British black market in the 1940s and 50s by the wonderful Mark Roodhouse, served alongside a traditional Betty's afternoon cream tea.

Author Psiche Hughes joined us in the Ron Cooke Hub to talk about her friend Beryl Bainbridge and how Beryl's love of art linked with her writing and her life. 

Meanwhile at the National Centre for Early Music, David Howard took us on a journey 'from South to North' exploring our voices from lungs to head! 

Today is 'Design for Living' day at the Ron Cooke Hub - a celebration of advances in technology, architecture and design. Tickets are available on the door if you're keen to attend.

We also have 'Minster of mystery' at York Minster, looking at the recent excavation and revealing new evidence of York's landscape before the Minster was built.

At York St John this afternoon we have an afternoon looking at the Battle of Jutland - with a lecture followed by a recreation of the battle in Temple Hall.
