SALISBURY History Festival is presenting a series of four local history presentations.

Each of the presentations is going to be available to watch on YouTube at 7pm and will run each evening from August 27 to 30.

Salisbury through the Ages’: Children’s Peace Pageant of 1919 by Neil Leacy is told through local newspaper reports, photos and film. It is the story of Frank Steven’s and the creation of Salisbury’s biggest street parade.

Street Memories: Catherine Street by Neil Leacy is a pictorial glance down one of Salisbury’s favourite thoroughfares. The presentation uses photos, postcards and adverts to share some of the stories of the shops and the people that make up some of the memories of Catherine Street from members of Fisherton History Society.

There is also B for Bradbeer by Ruby Vitotino, which tells the story of Firmin Bradbeer, the landlord of the Haunch of Venison from 1903 to 1945, and Fisherton House/The Old Manor Hospital Part 2 by Frogg Moody.
