Monthly talk January 2020 with Mike Holgate

We started this year with a concert. Mike Holgate is always a popular visitor to St Anne’s Hall. He has extensively researched the story of John “Babbacombe” Lee, and has written a book on the subject.

He told the story in song, many of them the ballads of the day. You may have thought that you knew the story of John Lee, but Mike did have some surprises.

Much more of the story had been discovered.
