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 7th Mar '17 - WITH COURAGE AND SACRIFICE

Josie Webb gave a very interesting illustrated talk about the World War Two heroine Violette Szabo (1921 - 1945). She was recruited into the SOE (Special Operations Executive) as a Secret Agent in occupied France. She was ultimately captured and transferred from prison to Ravensbrück concentration camp to be executed, aged only 23. In 1946 she was posthumously awarded the George Cross for her great courage and bravery. Her exploits have been immortalized in the film "Carve Her Name With Pride"
