Simon Briercliffe, ‘Forging Ahead: Austerity to Posterity in the Black Country, 1945-1968’ 

Brendan Clifford, ‘Red by Day and Black by Night: The Black Country – 500 Years in 50 Voices’.


Andrew Lovett of the Black Country Living Museum will also

explore how the Museum is moving forward with

its various projects.  Chaired by Malcolm Dick.
