Burnley FC in the Community’s Turf Talk group visited us again at the library recently.

Turf Talk is all about having a brew and telling stories about Burnley FC past and present. The group meet every Thursday afternoon but don’t have a regular meeting place as such, moving around different locations connected with Burnley FC, so coming to Clarets Collected in the Burnley Local History room is an ideal venue for them!

This was their fifth visit to us since Clarets Collected opened last November. Previously they’ve had a more detailed tour of the collection and enjoyed an illustrated talk from local author Mike Smith about the life of Bob Lord, but on this occasion it was just to look at some items from the collection informally and have their chats – and a brew, of course.

It is always a pleasure to host the Turf Talk as there are always fresh, fascinating stories that arise during the course of their chats, and it’s been good to see their numbers have actually been increasing since their initial couple of visits. If you’re reading this as a member of a group you think might like to visit then don’t hesitate to get in touch – you would be very welcome!
