Vintage Afternoon Tea with Julie Summers : Women on the Home Front

20/09/2016 @ 13:00 - 16:30

£20
Julie Summers Afternoon Tea

Julie Summers has become fascinated by the stories of women on the home front.

The role of women on the Home Front is often overlooked, yet their contribution to keep the country ticking was of inestimable value. This talk looks at the role played by women in the countryside, who worked tirelessly to help keep the nation fed, while looking after evacuees, knitting for the troops, making-do and mend for the government and entertaining themselves to keep their spirits up. For many, the village Women’s Institute was a life-saver. Julie reminds us that their story inspired ITV to create the magnificent 2015 drama series HOME FIRES.  All this and a vintage afternoon tea – an event not to be missed!
