On Wednesday, 14 May, 7.00 pm at Quarterhouse, Folkestone, Major Gordon Corrigan will talk on The Hundred Years War. Always a lively speaker with a new angle, military historian Gordon Corrigan is certain to provide some fresh insights into this conflict. He will reveal the horrors of battle and the machinations of power that have shaped a millennium of Anglo-French relationships.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
