Who were the women behind the scenes who turned the tide of war, helped immigrant communities thrive, and built the buzzing city of Bristol we see today?
The Bristol Festival of Literature and Arnos Vale present Stories of Strong Women – Women In The Shadows. Adela Straughan of Arnos Vale interviews local writers to cast a spotlight on the strong women who shaped our society.
You’ll hear humour, stunning insights and above all, amazing stories. With journalist Jane Duffus, author of “The Women Who Built Bristol”, journalist, entrepreneur and musician Charmaine Lawrence and novelist Christine Purkis.
Parking is free of charge, but limited. Buses from Bristol city centre stop right outside Arnos Vale, and it is a 20 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads railway station.
Book a Wonderful Women tour of Arnos Vale afterwards, 1pm, £5.
