Little elevations: walk and talk in Hannah More's poetic landscape
A talk on Hannah More from Dr Samantha Matthews, Senior Lecturer in Victorian Studies at the University of Bristol, followed by a guided walk of Tyntesfield's plantation with Holly Corfield Carr on Sunday 19 August.
This National Poetry Day, Thursday 4 October, poets Holly Corfield Carr, Rachael Boast and Samantha Walton host a celebration of re-reading at Spike Island in Bristol. Through relaxed and open discussion they explore how we read our favourite poems and writing by women.
This year marks the centenary of a key victory in the struggle for suffrage which gave some women the right to vote. Here's a selection of places in the South West who are exploring the stories of women who fought for the vote and influenced change throughout history.
Thank you to everyone who phoned and and told us about the women in your community, in your family or in the public eye that uses their position or time and energy to make a difference to the lives of others. Come back in October to find out how these stories will be turned into audio artworks.
