Two weeks today is the Bracknell Fair.
Bracknell Family History Fair. Where: Bracknell Leisure Centre,
Bagshot Road ( A322), Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 9SE. When: Sunday
January 2010 between 10am - 5pm Car parking free.
Entrance Fee of £3 this year
This is the biggest Family History Fair in Southern England, there are
lots of different society Stalls, Book Stalls etc., well worth a visit
if you have not been there before.
As in previous years, the Society has organised talks on several
subjects in the Forest Suite throughout the day.
Each session lasts an hour and includes questions, but we expect the
speakers will return to either the Berkshire Family History Society
stall or their own stall should more time be needed for questions.
There is a nominal charge of £2 for each session or £5 for all three
You should book ahead to make sure of your seat at any of the three

Tickets for these talks can also be purchased in advance from the
Berkshire FHS Research Centre and Branch meetings.
These tickets are for the talks. There is a separate entrance charge
for the fair, organised by Family History Fairs
If you do visit Bracknell, most people take a packed lunch, as the
small cafe takes ages to serve, due to the big queues, you can get a
coffee out of the machines.
