 Lecture: The Confederation of the Cinque Ports
On: Weds 6th Feb 2019 at 2.30pm
Where: St Augustine’s Hall, Bexhill, TN39 3AZ 

Speaker: Malcolm Pratt
The talk begins almost a thousand years ago when monarchs, having no Navy, recruited the men of ports in Kent and Sussex to both defend the vulnerable coast and provide transport to the continent. Tempting Privileges eased recruitment. Malcolm will talk about these issues and more besides right up to the present day.

Cost: £4 per person, £3 per Museum member with refreshments included.
