on 10th July, the Centenary Exhibition in the King’s Hall foyer will open, and it will run until 22nd
July. It will feature an illustrated history of the King’s Hall and a special section
devoted to residents’ memories of the Hall through the years.
To coincide with the exhibition, there
will also be two book launches.
Mike Bundock of the Historical Records Society will launch his latest book – “The Kings Hall Herne
Bay – Celebrating 100 years”. Drawing on Mike’s extensive rearch and detailed knowledge, and using pictures from the HBHRS archive and Mike’s own collection, this is a fascinating illustrated history of the King’s Hall from construction to the present day.
Sylvia McKean of the Herne & Broomfield Local History Group will be launching “Coronations
and Coronets” which relates how Herne villagers and schoolchildren celebrated
Coronations, Jubilees, Royal visits, from Queen Victoria’s Silver Jubilee in
1887 to Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
