HISTORIAN and author Lesley Burton will begin a six-week library course on the history of Gosport this month.

People can investigate the hidden history of the town with the expert’s help at the Gosport Discovery Centre from October 31.

The courses, which start at 5pm and last for two hours each Monday, will focus on social history and cost £20 for the six weeks. They will take in the stories of old buildings and the town’s former military establishments.

The historian will also explore the lives of people connected to Gosport, including Hollywood film stars who have paid visits to the town over the years.

To book a place, call the Discovery Centre on (023) 9252 3463.
