On Saturday 12 September, I went along to the J.B. Priestley Society’s annual dinner, which was held at the Great Victoria Hotel in Bradford. The date ties in as closely as possible with JB’s birthday! It was, as always, a great opportunity to catch up with Priestley contacts.
If you enjoy Priestley’s work, you may like to find out more about the Society, which brings his admirers together to socialise and learn. The Society has recently launched a new website, which is bringing a lot of fresh attention. It includes full details about the Society, how to join, Society news and events, other Priestley news, Society publications, and a section on using Priestley in schools. Among the benefits of membership, the Society runs at least four events a year, plus publishing a Journal and a Newsletter. I am on the Society’s Council and also involved with the web site, exhibitions, academic events and anything else where my skills and expertise may be helpful!
