Letters home: the story of Gertrude Bell
Monday 9th December 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A dramatic presentation by Geoff Hales Travelling Theatre
Gertrude Bell (1868 – 1926) was a traveller whose journeys took her all over the deserts of the Middle East, mostly on the back of a camel. Her experience of the tribes, the wildernesses, and the remote oases later made her invaluable to British Intelligence, where she worked with T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). From wherever she went, she wrote home to her father, describing her adventures. The letters tell of an amazing life.
We hope you will join us for this event in the Community Rooms at Milton Road Library, with seasonal refreshments (mince pies and mulled wine etc.) at 19:00.
