“Woman in Time”, our spoken word event based on the diaries and poems of Jacquetta Hawkes, went down ever so well. Waterstones Bradford cafe was the perfect location, with a view of beautiful books and plenty of delicious cakes and coffee. We got some lovely feedback – this cloud shows the words our audience used to describe the event.
Huge thank you to the British Science Association for funding this project and to Waterstones Bradford for being such lovely hosts. And of course Tori Herridge for having the idea for this event and making it happen. We are investigating possible venues for a repeat performance in London sometime soon … cake is a must of course.
In March 2015, an event in Bradford will explore the stories of humanity from its earliest days through to the turbulent middle years of the 20th Century, using poetry and spoken word performance to tell stories of three women whose paths met on Mount Carmel in 1932. One of these women died, one went on to great things, and one disappeared. Jacquetta Hawkes was the second of the three … here’s a glimpse of her take on the experience.

We’re thrilled to share the news that Special Collections at the University of Bradford and Trowelblazers have been awarded a grant by the British Science Association for this event, Woman in Time. Watch this space for more details!
