CGN Zoom History talk on Thurs Dec 1st at 1.30pm
David Roughley will be taking a trip down memory lane looking back at:
Christmas and its origins from pagan times to today.
From yule logs to wassailing, we’ll have music from the 1930’s 40’s & 50’s. 
  •  What were your favourite chocolates at Christmas?
  • Who remembers Warnicks Advocaat, ‘Clan Dew’ and green ginger wine?

  • Do you remember the seasonal TV Christmas Adverts for Hamlet, Gold Blend and Cointreau?  
  • Which advert was voted the best of all time ?

    Finally we take a look at some films shown on television and let’s not forget Christmas Day TV special programmes broadcast over Christmas. So for all the answers to these questions come and join us to get into the festive spirit on Thursday 1st December at 1.30pm. You will still have time to do your Christmas shopping!
