In May 2013 the Nottinghamshire County Council Libraries Archives and Information Service is planning to host a new Local History fair at the refurbished Mansfield Central Library.
This will form part of the Nottinghamshire Ancestral Tourism Partnership Nottinghamshire Peoples programme
A whole floor of Mansfield Library will be given to the fair, and vital to the success of this new venture will be the participation of as many local history societies as possible.
They also hope to feature live demonstrations of local crafts, storytelling, talks and other local history presentations.
All in all th concil would aim to make the Great Nottinghamshire Local History Fair the premier showcase for local history in Nottinghamshire, where local societies will find a forum to showcase their work, attract new members, sell their publications, and share expertise with other groups.
The date they are initially proposing for the fair is Sunday 19th May 2013 (there being free parking on Sundays between 10am and 4pm at the Four Seasons shopping centre next to Mansfield library). If, however, you know that this date clashes with any other important local event, we would be grateful if you could let them know.
