The Millowners Arms, part of the Kelham Island Industrial Museum, will be hosting a free Pub Heritage talk on Sunday 16 September as part of Heritage Open Days. The afternoon talk (14:30 to 16:00) with Dave Pickersgill, Pub Heritage Officer for Sheffield & District CAMRA, will take listeners on a tour of some of the many heritage pubs in the city of Sheffield. Along the way, mention will be made of some of the many influential brewers who have made their mark in the city.
The Millowners Arms explains the growth of Sheffield’s brewing industry and the role that pubs played in quenching the thirst of hot and dusty steelworkers. Victorian Sheffield is reported to have had over 1400 licensed premises at its peak. Refreshments will be available at the Millowners before and during the talk.

Dave will also be presenting a similar talk following the October branch meeting at the New Barrack Tavern on Tuesday 2 October.
