Voices from the Belvidere: Stories of Women from a First World War Fever Hospital
2nd February, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree – £2
Typhoid, Smallpox, Bubonic Plague, the Belvidere Fever Hospital on London Road treated them all. Uncover hidden histories of women from a First World War hospital in this series of workshops.
Voices from the Belvidere takes place on Thursdays 2nd February, 5.30pm to 7.30pm, 2nd March, 2.30pm to 4.30pm, 6th April, 5.30pm to 7.30pm, 4th May, 2.30pm to 4.30pm
In these workshops, we’ll support you to: research the stories of the women who lived, worked and died in the hospital during this period of War and upheaval, comb through the archives, meet people who remember the hospital and create a dramatic performance piece to mark the lives of the women we discover. If you think you may be interested in history, creative writing or performance, this is a unique way to gain skills and be part of an exciting new project.
If you would like to be part of this project but cannot make the dates shown, please contact Donna Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org as there will be additional dates once the group has decided how they want to take the project forward. Find all the Voices from the Belvidere workshops here.
