BASH was founded in October 2003. Its objective is to promote an interest and awareness in the local social history of Brigg and its surrounding areas, and to support traditional and historical events in its locale.

We have a variety of speakers covering a wide range of topics. We hold our meetings on the first Tuesday of each month (except for June, July and August) at the Brigg & Districts Servicemen's Club, Coney Court Brigg.

Meetings start at 20:00, there is no membership and the admission is free. We hold a raffle to defray our costs and a light buffet it provided. All are welcome to attend.

Tue 4th Apr '17 - LINCOLNSHIRE LANCASTER FIRSTS

Jim Shortland gave an illustrated talk about the Lancaster involvement in special operations such as the Augsburg Raid. He also covered the Dams Raid by 617 Squadron and later operations. He mentioned the special bombs that were developed during the war to breach defences and strong points such as the "bouncing bomb", "tall boy" and "earthquake bombs"
