David Glover presents

Calderdale Scientists and Inventors

Wed 03 Apr, 2:00pm at Copper Auditorium

Tickets: £6 (£4 concessions)

Many creative people have come from Calderdale, and David will tell the stories of several little-remembered but worthy characters. These include: the man who made scientific instruments for King George III; one of the greatest mycologists of the 18th Century; the bringer of electric light to Halifax – who also helped develop the telephone; and the inventor of linoleum and Lincrusta.
