Monday 5th November, 2:30pm - Monday 3rd December, 4:00pm
Bridport Museum’s exhibition, Home Front, Home, tells the stories of seven women from across the social classes in the town and how they responded to the challenges of a far-away war that gradually affected all civilians in their daily lives.
There are many more stories to tell. If you would like to hear more, then come to a series of talks by Professor Karen Hunt who, with a group of volunteers, undertook the extensive research which underpins the exhibition.
The talks, together with tea and cake, will take place on Monday afternoons, 2.30-4pm at Bridport Museum starting 5 November 2018.
5 November: An unusual town: the rope and netting industry in wartime Bridport
12 November: Women working on Bridport’s home front: paid work and volunteering
19 November: Food: the challenge of surviving on Bridport’s home front
26 November: Radical history on Bridport’s home front: women’s suffrage, trade unionism and conscientious objectors
3 December: The legacy of the home front for Bridport
Cost: £5 for each talk or £20 for all 5. For more information or to book your place(s) please contact us for a booking form.
