Henry VIII is the only king whose shape your remember. He bestrides our history like a colossus and the decisions he took still reverberate today. The Reformation is the first Brexit; his minsiters devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty and his tumultuous personal life pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of Isis. In this lecture David Starkey draws on his unique knowldge of Henry's reign on the one hand, and his insights as a leading commentator on modern politics on the other, to illuminate both the Tudor age and our own.
Northallerton & District Flower Club are delighted to invite you to their Open Meeting with National Demonstrator David Ryland from Armathwaite in Cumbria.
David is a Chelsea Gold Medal Winner and a self-confessed Plantaholic. When he is not travelling the length and breadth of the country with his wonderful demonstrations, taking part in competitions or promoting the work of the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies, he is working in his beloved garden which he opens to the public.
David brings a mix of art and horticulture together, using unusual garden material and glorious flowers to create “A Christmas Collection” of spectacular arrangements.
If you are extremely lucky in the raffle you may even leave, at the end of the evening, with one of David’s creations!
Do join us for a fun filled evening of festive flowers and friendship. You will be regally entertained, we promise!

The Railway Town’s Newspaper – “Treasuring our Railway Heritage”
An evening with Peter Barron
Peter Barron is one of the UK’s most experienced newspaper editors and columnists. You’ll laugh out loud at the disasters and you’ll be moved to tears by the triumphs but there’s never a dull moment as Peter looks back on a career in the news which earned him an MBE.
Darlington is known as the birthplace of the Railways; as a result of this major event in the town's history Peter firmly believes this was one of the major factors the Northern Echo was also born in the town in 1870. Peter has always had a passion for railway history and during his editorship he ran a campaign “Treasuring our Railway Heritage” in which he urged the town to do more to capitalise on its railway history. Without the railways there perhaps wouldn't have been a paper, without the paper then Peter's career may have taken a different track.
