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 3rd Oct '17 - THE GARDEN THROUGH THE YEAR

A very interesting illustrated talk by Loretta comparing today's gardening events during the Seasons with those that are illustrated in the margins of various Medieval Year Books per month. There was a good audience participation to help decipher some of the plants/crops in the illustrations.

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.

Tue 20th Sep '16 - BASH AGM starts 7.30 pm
