Sussex Inn Signs and their History

Speaker: Dr Janet Pennington

Inn signs were, and still are, much more than external advertising for food, drink and possibly accommodation nowadays. The signs and their brackets reveal patronage, land ownership, social status and local personalities and events, opening a window on to the past. Sussex inn signs are a colourful addition to our urban and rural surroundings and they are still full of meaning in the twenty-first century. If you think you know your White Horse from your Red Lion, or your Kings Head from your Royal Oak, come along and learn something new.
