The last talk at the Heritage Centre on Front Line Eastbourne was a complete sell-out.
Our second talk for the duration of the World War Two exhibition is The Women’s Land Army - a Sussex connection and the speaker is Ian Everest who was a past curator at Newhaven Fort.
The talk is to be given on Wednesday July 16 at Eastbourne Heritage Centre.
Ian Everest will describe the vital role of the women’s land army at a time of food shortages and rationing, and he brings it to life with his mother’s first hand experiences of working as a land girl in Sussex.
The centre is open from 6pm onwards for the opportunity to see the new Front Line Eastbourne exhibition, walk around the centre, and enjoy wine, soft drinks, tea, coffee and light snacks, followed by the talk that starts at 7pm.
The price for each talk is £5 available in advance or on the door, and booking is advisable as places are limited.
Eastbourne Heritage Centre is at 2 Carlisle Road, Eastbourne BN21 4BT. Telephone 01323 411189 or visit our new website at www.eastbourneheritagecentre.co.uk
