Event Description

Dear All

A reminder of our forthcoming annual Local History Fair for Haringey next week. There will be stalls from a range of community and local history groups for you to visit and to network with, as well as a programme of talks running throughout the day. The Search Room will also be open for visitors (but not for research) and our café will be open too for light refreshments.

So please come along and find out more about your borough!
We look forward to seeing you.
