Talk and Afternoon Tea, ‘War Girls’ with Ruth Sillers

Ruth Sillers, who began her career with the National Youth Theatre and reads regularly for Radio 4 and the BBC world service, will be talking about and performing extracts from her own audiobook compilation, War Girls.

The study is a commemoration of the remarkable and largely unsung experiences of women in the First World War told in their own words. Some are the writings of well-known poets and novelists, but many more are the stories of ordinary women living in extraordinary times. These are stories not just of hardship and suffering but joy and excitement at the new opportunities opening up for women.

2.00 p.m. Talk, 3.00 p.m. Afternoon tea.

Tickets £11; Students / Friends £8.50
