BASH was founded in October 2003. Its objective is to promote an interest and awareness in the local social history of Brigg and its surrounding areas, and to support traditional and historical events in its locale.

We have a variety of speakers covering a wide range of topics. We hold our meetings on the first Tuesday of each month (except for June, July and August) at the Brigg & Districts Servicemen's Club, Coney Court Brigg.

Meetings start at 20:00, there is no membership and the admission is free. We hold a raffle to defray our costs and a light buffet it provided. All are welcome to attend.

Tue 2nd May '17 - WATCH THE WALL MY DARLING

A very interesting and informative talk of smuggling covering some of Lincolnshire with examples at Skegness, Sutton on Sea and Alford. He also covered the attempts to hide from and fool the Excise men. He also showed examples of the special flat bottomed boats that were used to negotiate the shallow waters.

Sun 30th Oct '16 - BRIGG HALLOWEEN GHOST WALK

The Ghost walk was a success with an attendance of over 80. Many people enjoyed listening to the many stories of the Ghosts and hauntings of Brigg as they were walked around the Town.
