Beers Bears & Blankets

Date: Tuesday 4 May 2021
Time: 6.30pm

Location: The Blanket Room

Join us for this free History Festival event to hear some of the hidden stories of the Lobethal Woollen Mill, manufacturer of the famous Onkaparinga blankets. Join Pauline Cockrill, Community History Officer from the History Trust of South Australia, as she shares stories discovered during her research into the Mill’s social history.

If you have your own Mill stories, we would love to hear them on the night, and if you have a vintage Onkaparinga blanket, feel free to bring it along to keep cosy during the event.
