Sandgate Society Archive Team – H.G. Wells Exhibition 2022 and Guided Walk

Dear Members

Our talented and hardworking Archives Team, who entertained and informed us all during the lockdowns with their ‘Tales From the Archives’, have a new treat in store for you all.

On Saturday  2nd April and Sunday  3rd April,  from 10.30am to 4.00pm, they are holding an H.G. Wells Exhibition in the Old Fire Station with refreshments available in the beautiful listed Reading Room.

Recently discovered correspondence relating to Spade House will be on display for the first time. At the exhibition you will be able to view letters by H. G. Wells, architect C. F. A. Voysey and Folkestone builder William Dunk and also documents from the Sandgate Society archive files.

At the exhibition, there will also be a beautiful limited edition H. G. Wells Commemorative  Envelope and Stamp available to buy for £5.00.

Members also have the excellent opportunity for priority booking onto a Guided Walk, led by Blue Badge Guide Robert Sissons,  where you will walk in the footsteps of H.G. Wells; explore his Sandgate and find out more about this fascinating character.

The Guided Walk will take place on Saturday 2nd April at 2pm and Sunday 3rd April at 2pm and will cost £5 (including tea/coffee and cake afterwards in the Reading Room). Please book in advance by either emailing  or by ringing Gemma on 07984 694907. There are only twenty places available on each walk so book early to secure a place.  

Please feel free to forward the attached poster on to anyone you feel would be interested in visiting what promises to be a very special, interesting and informative exhibition.

Best wishes

The Events Team
