I very much regret that in light of the worsening situation with pandemic Coronavirus we have decided that we must cancel this meeting on 31st March
This is particularly regrettable as the talk had generated so much interest, but I’m sure that everyone will understand why this decision was inevitable
We will review later talks closer to the time as the situation becomes clearer

A Talk by Carolyn Ewing
The history of the Hatton Asylum provides an insight into how the Victorians treated the mentally ill. The Hatton records are kept at the Warwick County Record Office and include admission notes, case books and photographs.
This illustrated talk by archivist, Carolyn Ewing will introduce this intriguing collection and tell the stories of some of the people who were treated there.
