About this Event
Women’s History Month sees the launch of the Haringey Women’s History Map, highlighting the fascinating lives and accomplishments of many women who have contributed, influenced and helped shape the area we know today.
Find out about a few of these women’s amazing deeds and darings – from parachutist Dolly Shepherd and the first motorbike trials by women at Alexandra Palace, to the philanthropy of Mrs Smithies of Wood Green towards animal welfare, the vision of teacher Blanche Nevile in Tottenham and the novels of Buchi Emecheta OBE in Crouch End …..
.Join Kirsten Forrest of Alexandra Palace and Deborah Hedgecock of Bruce Castle Museum for this ‘Munch and Listen’ talk, as they share some of these stories – some known, others overlooked or forgotten, and those that need to be told.
