The development of sport in ancient Greece is the subject of a talk at Spalding Grammar School on Friday (8pm).

The talk is one of the winter lectures organised each year by Spalding Gentlemen’s Society.

Ronald Abbot will talk about the first accurately attested date in Greek history, the first Olympiad in 776 BC.

He will discuss how sport formed an integral part of education in ancient Greece where young men were educated in gymnasia.

Entry is £2.
