Brigg Amateur Social Historians (BASH)

For future events, see the diary

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 1st Nov '16 - TITANIC - THE LINCOLNSHIRE LINK

A local lad called Harry and his lover Lizzie were on the ill-fated Titanic as Second Class passengers. On the tragic night Lizzie managed to find her way onto a lifeboat but Harry alike many of the men drowned. He is buried in Newfoundland amongst many others. Lizzie was picked up by the RMS Carpathia and was landed in New York penniless. She then boarded a train to Philadelphia. Harry was related to the Guest Speaker Rod Fanthorpe, who was a cousin. Rod gave an excellent talk.
