SUSSEX INN SIGNS & THEIR HISTORY - SPEAKER: DR. JANET PENNINGTON
Time & Location
About the Event
Inn signs are much more than an external advert for food, drink and accommodation. They reveal a fascinating history of patronage, land ownership, social status and local personalities. Dr Janet Pennington will explain how they are still full of meaning for us in the 21st century. If you think you know your White Horse from your Red Lion – sign up for our very first Zoom talk and learn something new!
Janet taught local history and palaeography at the University of Sussex and was also an archivist for Lancing College. Her talks are noted for their enthusiastic and lively style. Janet’s PhD on Sussex Inns and Taverns means she’s probably been in more pubs than most people, (purely for research purposes, of course …)
