MORNING: 

Joan Kirk a Quilter will tell this story with her ‘’Underground Railroad Quilt’’ A huge network of people worked to take enslaved people from the Southern United States to the freedom in the Northern US and Canada. Quilt patterns were an essential tool on the escape route. A fascinating oral history, with stories of courage, determination and hope. This became the story of ‘’Hidden in plain sight’’

AFTERNOON: 

‘’Sex, Drink and Death in the 17th Century‘’ - Tim Healey is a writer and broadcaster who has presented many programmes on BBC Radio 3 and 4. This will be a romp through the pleasures and perils of life in this turbulent era,

featuring bawdy frolics, alehouse revels, highway robberies, civil war, fire and plague. Hugely entertaining, the talk also gives important insight into evolving customs – of courtship, celebration, faith and burial – at the dawn of the modern age.
