8pm to 10pm, Wednesday 30 January 2019
The guest for this event is Eric Scaife with a talk entitled 'Tyke Talk' an interesting talk on the Yorkshire dialect combining history and humour.
Eric, a former joiner, is an enthusiastic member of both the Yorkshire Dialect Society and the Yorkshire Ridings Society, both of which he promotes whole heartedly. The Yorkshire dialect is not an example of slang or lazy speech but a living language which he and many others are working hard to keep alive, being derived from the many languages used over the centuries, with many words still recognisable in everyday speech and place names.
Join us in the comfortable surroundings of the Fairfield Manor Hotel, with free refreshments and ample parking.
