Talk by Jennifer Reid.

During a research visit to Dhaka this year, Jennifer discovered many links between Manchester and Lancashire traditional songs and those from Dhaka and Sylhet. Using the shared cotton industry which has acted as a bridge between the UK and Bangladesh, there are relevant comparisons to be made.

Admission free; all welcome. This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series.

Jennifer will also help us launch our contribution to the project ‘A History of Lancashire in 70 Objects'. This is a Heritage Lottery Funded project run in partnership between Lancashire Heritage Learning, Lancashire Life and Museum Development North West. To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Lancashire Life, 70 objects have been chosen with the help of the public from 70 different venues in the County Palatine, each telling a story from Lancashire. The project will run throughout September to November 2017, and aims to celebrate Lancashire's history whilst encouraging the people of Lancashire and beyond to explore and engage with their local history.

Our chosen object is a beautiful banner, donated to us as part of a fascinating archive of campaign material by the group Lancashire Women Against Pit Closures. You can read more about the archive on the library blog at wcml.org.uk/blog. The banner is currently on display in our hall.
