Stories of Lynn’s Spring Talks programme returns with three lectures on women who have been important to Norfolk’s history.

On Tuesday, April 10, historian Alison Gifford will be sharing intriguing, little-known facts about Norfolk’s forgotten wives and mothers - the the women who played significant parts in the lives of some of Norfolk’s most famous men, such as Admiral Nelson and George Vancouver.

On Tuesday, April 17, Kathy Hipperson will explore the inspiring work of Norfolk’s suffragettes. And on Tuesday, April 24, Rachael Williams, from Stories of Lynn, will be joined by West Norfolk’s current Mayor Carol Bower to explore Lynn’s history of female mayors, which began when Florence Ada Coxon became mayor in 1925.

All three talks take place at 6:30 – 7:30pm at King’s Lynn Town Hall, with tickets available on the door. Tickets for one talk are £2.50, or all three can be attended for £6.
