FREE OPEN DAY at Bullring Henge 30th July 11-7


Hi folks,
We can now announce that there will be a FREE OPEN DAY at the Bullring Henge on Saturday 30th July from 11am til 7pm. Talks from 1-5pm from Buxton Museum and many eminent speakers. Displays of finds from the henge and a display of some of my neolithic stone axes all day. Tour of the henge with detailed info and discussion. We are having a picnic and acoustic music in the henge from 5-7pm (bring your own picnic and instruments). The event is part of www.megalithic.co.uk 10th anniversary (link: http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=2146413973 ) and also part of the British Festival of Archaeology. The event is completely free to everyone and we are hoping for a large turnout. Raising awareness of this majestic ancient monument will go a long way to protecting it (especially with local support). The event will be in the Community Association Hall (just off A6 in the middle of Dove Holes behind the cricket pitch and 20m from the henge). If you can put up any A4 posters for us then please email me (pointbutted@googlemail.com) and I can send you some. We are also open to any speakers that may wish to do a talk on prehistory (particularly in the Peak District). This will be a really fun day out at a superb ancient site with many like-minded people - so come and join us for a superb day of all things prehistoric in the Peak. Blingo_von_T

It's quite amazing people could treat this place as a dump, in such a tiny village.
It should be a beacon they use to promote the place.
Doesn't really have much else going for it does it. : I

Plans building nicely !! Should be a really great day with all you meganauts out there coming to visit us and our glorious henge. My article is definitely going in the July edition of Derbyshire Life !! Lots of interesting talks and displays and lots of people that care passionately about this mighty monument (wipes tear from eye). Wait til you see my stone axe display . . .
Rock on,
