Six great events to choose from on this list
Armadale always seems to have a lot of good events which are either free or relatively cheap.

This is a list of my top six picks for the month of November 2018.

1. From Hamel to Montbrehain - The Last 50 Years
Address: Armadale Public Library, Shop 64, Armadale Central Shopping Centre, 10 Orchard Avenue, Armadale
Date: Sunday 11th November, from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm

This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the World War 1 Armistice. This was a declaration that ended the fighting which had started in the year 1914.

The July victory at Hamel followed nearly 100 days later with the Australian troops breaching the German Beaurevoir Line at Montbrehain. The divisions defeated 39 divisions of the Imperial German Army, liberated 116 French towns and villages and captured almost 30,000 prisoners.

Linton Reynolds has researched the local enlistees who fought in this battle. This session will look at the history of the events that took place between July and November.

This is a free event, however, you will need to register here.



2. NovelNibbles: Days
Address: Kelmscott Library, 2784 Albany Highway, Kelmscott
Date: Every second Tuesday of the month

Have you read a good book lately? Come along and share your opinions with other book lovers at one of their book clubs. Perhaps you would read new and different authors, try another genre, or possibly even rediscover some forgotten favourites!

There will be light refreshments provided at these sessions and bookings are not required.



3. Excess Baggage
Address: History House Museum, 11 Jull Street, Armadale
Date: Thursday 15th November, till 30th April 2019, from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm

This is the stories of the men and women who returned from World War 1. This exhibition shows you what happened to the people from the local district who enlisted and survived World War 1.

You will learn about their stories through the physical and emotional souvenirs that they brought back.

This is a free event, and for more information click here.

4. Christmas: Then and Now
Address: Armadale Library, Shop 64 / 10 Orchard Avenue, Armadale
Date: Saturday 17th November, from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm

Christmas is very different nowadays from those remembered by our more senior members of the community and those who have come from places other than Western Australia!

This will be interesting stories and memories which will be shared about the traditions of your Festive Season.

As places are limited for this event, bookings are essential and you can read more and book at this link.



5. Genealogy Groups: Family Tree Group
Address: Birtwistle Local Studies Library, Shop 64 / 10 Orchid Avenue, Armadale
Date: Thursday, 29th November, from 10.00 am to 12 noon

If you are researching, or interested in researching your family history, then groups are an opportunity to meet with others also doing history research.

This event is held every last Thursday of each month. It is a free event and you do not need to book. For more information, click on this link.

6. Ye Olde Narrogin Inne: How Old is Olde?
Address: History House Museum, 11 Jull Street, Armadale
Date: Thursday, 29th November, from 6.30 pm to 8.00 pm

At one stage, the Old Narrogin Inn became "Ye Olde" even when it wasn't particularly old at all! So what is the reasoning behind this name change?

Find out this and more, at this event where you will hear about the history of the Narrogin Inn, and few people know the real story behind this fascinating hotel!

Eddie Marcus, a historian, will tell you this fascinating story - learn more and enjoy a wine and refreshments at History House Museum.

Even though this is a free event, bookings are essential. Call 9394 5670 or go to this link to book your place and/or find out more information. This event is suitable for over 18 years of age only.
