Christmas Party

Make a note in your diary! The Wynkyn de Worde Society's Christmas Party will be on 30 November this year and it will be held at an exciting new location: the Cello Factory, Lambeth.

The Wapping Dispute

Members interested in the history of labour relations in the printing industry, and particularly the newspaper industry, may be interested in an episode of Radio 4's The Reunion about the clash between Rupert Murdoch and the unions. It is now available on iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b091scbx I am obliged to John Granville for suggesting that it should be brought to the attention of WdeWers.

A date for your diary

If you don't already have the date down, make sure you're free for the Quiz Night on 17 October. It was fantastic last year and it's sure to be even better this year!
