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.


Rod Fanthorpe's interesting illustrated talk about the unofficial 1914 Christmas Truce which involved the British and German Soldiers meeting up in "No Man's land" along some sectors of the Western Front. Rod also compared events that were happening back in Lincolnshire on the "Home Front" at Christmas.

Sun 22nd Oct '17 - BRIGG GHOST WALK

The Brigg Ghost walk was again a success with an attendance of over 40 split into 2 groups. Many people enjoyed listening to the stories of the Ghosts that have been seen and the haunting's as they walked around parts of the Town.
