New pub history course

Brian Holmshaw, a local history tutor, is running his Social History of Sheffield Pubs course for the Workers Education Association again in February. It is a six week course held on Mondays at a cost of £38.40 using images, maps and documents of the period to examine the origins, architecture and ownership of pubs and brewing in Sheffield, the impact of heavy industry on the way people drank and how pubs were used as public
spaces, including the development of the temperance movement.

This time the tuition will be online via Zoom. To book visit the WEA website or for more information about the course’s content you can contact Brian by emailing
