'An exploration of how seaside resorts first developed in the Georgian era, boomed with the coming of the railways and continued to attract visitors in their thousands until the 1960s. The talk includes hotels, seaside entertainment and the publicity that enticed people to go there. The talk concludes with the decline of the traditional seaside holiday in the late 20th century, and the efforts made by resorts to reverse this trend'

Rev'd Dr Geoff Dumbreck is the speaker for this month's free lecture, at which all are welcome.
François-René de Chateaubriand was a French aristocrat, writer, diplomat and aspiring explorer. Fleeing the French Revolution, he made his way to London and East Anglia, bringing some Gallic charm to the small towns of Beccles and Bungay. Geoff Dumbreck will introduce you to the life of this remarkable character, who left his mark on theology, literature, politics, and - perhaps most famously - steak
Church at Castle will welcome all churches within the parish to join them in St Giles' garden for a Pentecost bring and share picnic. This will be an informal gathering of unity and a great opportunity to have fun together. We hope to share songs from the rich variety of church traditions in our neighbourhood as an informal entertainment, and there will be fun activities for all ages, and provision for just relaxing together. Drinks will be provided.
This walk is a C@C response to the 'Thy Kingdom Come' Ascension to Pentecost 10 days global wave of prayer. Everyone is welcomed to join in and cover as much of the route as they are able.
