Blood, Birth & Boils: Missionary Families in the Age of Empire

The Friends of Holy Saviour Church invite you to their next “Talk & Tea“ event, when Dr Emily Manktelow, of Royal Holloway, University of London, will talk about the realities of life for missionaries and their families in far flung outposts of the British Empire. How did starched and corseted middle class Britons cope with insects in the cot, strange men under the bed and cow dung as household polish? Come along and find out!

Sunday 23rd September at 3pm in Holy Saviour Church, Radcliffe Road

Tickets cost £8 (Friends £7) including tea after the talk; contact Clare Fleck (01462 646257) or visit the Hitchin Initiative Office, 1A Churchyard.
