Find the meaning of your surname:

Desford Heritage Festival will be taking place in Leicestershire from July 2nd-3rd and will be a fabulous event! Plus, Hall of Names retailers Frank and Hazel Sweeney will be there to showcase the Hall of Names range.



Desford will be transported back in time as it is divided into 9 different time zones in the biggest ever celebration of its history! Experience what life was like in each time period as the zones are brought to life by a range of actors, musicians, re-enactors, food vendors, vehicles and entertainers.

Historical encampments
Street entertainment
Vintage transport
Funfair through time
Desford Pop-up Museum
Themed pubs
Archery & Penny farthing experiences
Live music through time
Morris Dancing
Victorian school room experience

and much much more!

This is an event that really will go down in history!



The range includes surname histories with the earliest coat of arms relating to a bearer of the name. Plus you can also view clan histories, and Irish histories. And there is really so much to discover about your name!  If you are looking for an ideal gift for a couple, then ask Frank and Hazel about the double coats of arms scroll. Not only does this gift feature two coats of arms side by side, but it also has your personal message below. For example, you could include a significant date such as a wedding. You’ll be able to see it all on screen before Frank or Hazel print it out for you while you wait! They look forward to seeing you there!
