Bestselling author and award-winning former BBC Chief News Correspondent Kate Adie reveals the ways in which women's lives were transformed during World War One. With a generation of men heading off to fight, Kate will bring to light how women emerged from the shadows of their domestic lives to take up essential roles within society, acquiring their own rights, and independent incomes; becoming a visible force in public life. This event promises to be an inspiring evening, featuring tales of the momentous achievements attained by these pioneering women.

A pioneering woman herself, Kate Adie was one of the first British women to report from danger zones around the world including both Gulf Wars, four years of war in the Balkans, and numerous assignments in Northern Ireland throughout ‘The Troubles’, to name a few. Kate is also a long-serving presenter of Radio 4’s From Our Own Correspondent and contributor to other radio and television programmes. Now is your chance to listen to her stories, accounts and historical exploration in person at this exciting one-off event.

Tickets are available online or from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum reception in person or by phone using a credit or debit card on 01392 265858 during opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.
