Event Description

Mark is a freelance artist, designer-silversmith and semi-retired university lecturer. His talk is about the ancient custom of Beating the Bounds which has seen many revivals in the present, with all its eccentric accompaniments. Mark will give a detailed account and look at the ways in which it has functioned as a blessing, a purification and a means of confirming parochial boundaries.


Doors open at 7.30pm for the sale of refreshments and publications and close at 8pm. The main doors have to be closed at that time for security reasons, so anyone arriving after then will be unable to gain access.

A donation of £2 is requested from non-members.
