Zoom Meeting on Thursday 8th July 2021
The Real Downton Abbey: Domestic Service Before the Great War
On Thursday 8th July 2021 we are pleased to welcome Ian Porter to talk to us about what domestic service was really like for our ancestors. The TV series paints a rosy picture of the life of a servant but this was not always the case. Ian originates from London. He is a historian, public speaker, writer of historical books and leader of guided walks around London, one of his interests being Jack the Ripper. This promises to be a very interesting and informative talk. I do hope that you will be able to join us.
Meetings: Gorse Hill Community Centre, Chapel Street, Gorse Hill, Swindon SN2 8DA (Click for map).
Second and Fourth Thursday of each month, starting at 7.30 pm.
