2019 Hungerford Trade Showcase @ John O'Gaunt School
Oct 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
2019 Hungerford Trade Showcase @ John O'Gaunt School | England | United Kingdom

A joint John O’Gaunt/Hungerford Town Council enterprise

After two years of staging the Showcase during the school day, the organisers believe that a change would be beneficial and have thus chosen to hold it this year in the evening of Tuesday 22 October, from 6.30pm to 8.00pm. As before, this will be open to the public (who hitherto have often been unable to attend the day-time events).

This will enhance the annual parent’s evening which takes place at the same time.

The event will demonstrate the wide scope of jobs and career opportunities across a wide range of trades and sectors in and around the towny. The aim, as in previous years, is to provide visitors with key pointers as to the skills and aptitude necessary to develop future career aspirations. Representatives from local colleges and apprenticeship organisations will also be attending.

If you wish to discover more about the carer and apprenticeship opportunities that exist on your doorstep, we look forward to seeing you there.

A.N. Wilson on Prince Albert: The Man Who Saved the Monarchy @ Hungerford Town Hall
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm
A.N. Wilson on Prince Albert: The Man Who Saved the Monarchy @ Hungerford Town Hall | England | United Kingdom

For more than six decades, Queen Victoria ruled a great Empire at the height of its power. Beside her for more than twenty of those years was the love of her life, her trusted husband and father of their nine children, Prince Albert. But while Victoria is seen as the embodiment of her time, it was Prince Albert, A.N. Wilson expertly argues, who was at the vanguard of Victorian Britain’s transformation as a vibrant and extraordinary centre of political, technological, scientific and intellectual advancement. Far more than just the product of his age, Albert was one of its influencers and architects.

A composer, engineer, soldier, politician, linguist and bibliophile, Prince Albert, more than any other royal, was truly a ‘genius’. Albert lived only forty-two years. Yet in that time, he fathered the royal dynasties of Germany, Russia, Spain and Bulgaria.

Through Victoria, Albert and her German advisers pioneered the idea of the modern constitutional monarchy. In this sweeping biography, Wilson demonstrates that there was hardly any aspect of British national life which Albert did not touch. Drawn from the Royal archives, including Prince Albert’s voluminous correspondence, this brilliant and ambitious book offers fascinating never-before-known details about the man and his time.

A.N. Wilson will be talking about his book at 7:30pm in Hungerford Town Hall, followed by questions from the audience and a booksigning. Tickets include a glass of wine and £5 off the book night.

Hungerford Wednesday Market @ Hungerford High Street
Oct 23 @ 7:00 am – 2:30 pm
Hungerford Wednesday Market @ Hungerford High Street | England | United Kingdom

Wednesday is market day in Hungerford, when cars give way to shoppers, traders and stalls filled with fresh fruit, vegetable, fish, meat, flowers, plants, clothes, fabrics, collectables and more.

You’ll find the Hungerford Charter Market on the High Street just outside the Town Hall, starting early in the morning and packing away early afternoon. Don’t forget to check the Town Hall Steps and Magistrates Room, as both are often hired for indoor sales, are are very popular for arts and crafts markets.

If you’d like a stall at the weekly Charter market, please speak to Darren on the Flower Stall.

Did you know… Hungerford is believed to have first held a market in 1248 during the reigh of Henry III. In 1296, Edward I confirmed in writing the rights to hold a market.
