Café Historique

Welcome back for a new season of great history talks and fun times at Hermann’s Jazz Club! The theme of the 2023-24 series is “The History of Everyday Life.” Our UVic scholars will share what they know about the strange and wonderful history of things that we often take for granted. This season we will run on the first Wednesday of each month.
