A trilogy of talks will reveal the secrets of 5 Winckley Square.

In the series, named A House Through Time, Susan Douglass will tell the story of the property and those who lived in it, from when it was built by Thomas Miller to the present day. 

After selling out last year, the event is returning by popular demand during the evening.

The event organisers said: “A golden nugget of information in a 150-year-old newspaper article after a frustratingly long search; a chance discovery of an unknown document in Lancashire Archives; one sentence in an obscure e-book; a family photograph album viewed in a dusty ante-room in the Harris Library.

“These are the sources that helped reveal the stories of long-dead occupants of those rooms. However, it’s the stories of the inhabitants, stories of real people, their trials and tribulations, which bring the building to life. All will be revealed across the three talks.
