Eagle Day announced for September

(via the Eagle Times): The Eagle Society is to hold an Eagle Day in August to celebrate the classic British comic.

Eagle Days were the idea of the late Bob Rothwell, offering fellow ‘Eaglers’ and collectors, to chat, swap, buy and sell spare Eagle and other comic-related items – and generally have a good time.

The day will include talks on Eagle-related subjects and a chance to look at displays of Eagle /comic-related items. Light refreshments will be available.

• Eagle Day, The Village Hall, Great Staughton, St. Neots, Cambridgeshire PE19 5DG; Sunday, 23rd September, 2012, 10.00 – 16.00. Single entry £3 – in advance or pay on the door. Bring your spare Eaglecomic items.
