BMI Twilight Talk – A Year with the Plague

September 13 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm AEST

$5 – $8

Dr. John Garner

This talk discusses the history of an isolated outbreak of the plague in a Derbyshire village in 1665-6 and the heroic way in which the villagers coped and stopped the spread of the dreaded disease. Their actions are still as important today as then.

My involvement is that this is the village to which my family evacuated in 1940 and, like Ballarat, it was a mining community and has a Mechanics’ Institute founded in 1860.
