Historian Tony Smailes will present an illustrated talk on the history of the Berlin Wall at Hutton Magna Village Hall on Sunday 22 February.

"Checkpoint Charlie" was the name given by the Western Allies to the best known Berlin Wall crossing point between East and West Berlin during the cold war. It became a symbol of the Cold War representing the separation of East and West.

Tony has studied and followed the history of the wall, attending events connected with it. This promises to be a fascinating talk on one of the iconic constructions of the twentieth century.

Tickets at £4.50, to include refreshments, from Angela on 01833 627286
