First Monday Talk: The Plague Doctor of Eyam with David Bell

The picturesque little Derbyshire Peak District village of Eyam is never shy making capital from its famous plague past. Tens of thousands of visitors flock there every year to see for themselves where a tragic story of quarantine and sacrifice was played out 355 years ago.

But don't expect too much doom and gloom from this proud Geordie exile as he puts his own unique, tongue-in-cheek spin on the life of a plague doctor and what living in a tourist hot-spot like Eyam means to him . . . Surely a place to avoid like the plague ?

David Bell is a popular and hugely entertaining speaker. He will not only surprise you but will also make you think . . . . and certainly make you laugh out loud.

Tea, coffee and light snacks are available during the mid-evening refreshment break.

First Monday Talk: In Pursuit of a Peak District Pensioner Criminal with Tim Knebel

The remarkable tale of one of the most prolific and ‘incorrigible’ offenders ever to leave their mark in Derbyshire Police records. Blazing a trail of petty crime across Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, from the 1870s to at least 1916, Annie Burke’s life is both well chronicled (with her multiple offences documented in a range of police, court and newspaper records) but also shrouded in mystery (due to her itinerant lifestyle, her use of multiple aliases and habitual deceit and lies!). This is a gripping story of how one extraordinary woman sought to continually evade the long-arm of the law over many decades and across county boundaries at a time when police were increasingly armed with improved crime-detecting methods (e.g. greater information sharing across forces, developments in photography and new finger-printing technology). Did Annie succeed in her boldly-stated aim of wanting to rack up a century of separate criminal convictions? It is also a moving human story of hardship, resilience and sheer defiance in the face of poverty, suffering and persistent and painful punishment.

Tea, coffee and light snacks are available during the mid-evening refreshment break.

Cancelled - School Holiday Crafts - Spring Week

In accordance with the most recent government advice, and to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors, we are postponing the 2020 opening of our Tudor site and Mr Barnes’ farm indefinitely. This includes our school holiday craft activities and Easter Egg Hunt. We are also cancelling our April First Monday Lecture. A refund will be issued to all those that have bought tickets to our events and should appear in your paypal account within the next few days.

We are very sad to have had to make this decision but we have taken the following into consideration:

• The UK government has issued advice for people to work from home, avoid social contact and places such as pubs and theaters
• Emergency services cannot provide support for mass gatherings
• Many of our volunteers are in the at-risk group and we want to ensure their safety
• With the likelihood of reduced staff numbers, we will not be able to support our activities safely.

The Rhubarb Shed Cafe, which is an independently run business, continues to open as usual and are taking a wide range of measures to make sure their visitors stay safe and well.

The government is still recommending getting out for exercise if you are able, so if you need a breath of fresh air, why not enjoy one of Sheffield’s fantastic parks. The flowers are just starting to peep through, there’s a hint of warmth in the sun and plenty of open space to roam in.

We’re really going to miss our crafts, but you could still have a go at some Easter and spring activities. We get our inspiration from Pinterest and Baker Ross have some fantastic reasonably priced crafts too.

We look forward to seeing all our visitors again once we reopen and thank you all for your continued support. Just in case you didn’t know, we are run by not for profit community interest group, Green Estate. Visitors coming over our doorstep are vital in ensuring we can look after our animals and the history on site. We know this will be a difficult time for many people but if you are able to help in any small way then we would love to hear from you.

Stay safe, look after each other and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.
