Inns of Thame Discovered DigiTAL 2020

A short film presented by our museum’s David Bretherton and Allan Hickman, filmed and edited by Steve Bannister for the DigiTAL 2020 festival as part of the free DigiTAL Fringe movies.

David and Allan’s new book is available now from our Museum shop and from The Book House in Thame from November 2020.

It’s 20 years since the first edition of the book “Thame Inns Discovered” waThame Inns Discovereds published by Allan Hickman and David Bretherton.

The authors are keen to publish an updated version but there’s one problem. All the licensing records were destroyed in the District Council office fire.

The authors have launched an appeal to anyone who has information on the names of Thame pub licencees since 2000.

Do you have an interesting story to tell about one of Thame’s pubs or recent pictures that the authors can use? There’s a Facebook page called “Discovering Thame Inns” or you can go to the other Facebook page “Nostalgic Thame And Surrounding Villages” with any information or photographs you’d like to share.
