Catharine Tait: Victorian Pioneer

  • Fulham Palace Bishops Avenue, Fulham London United Kingdom (map)

This talk by Miranda Poliakoff, Curator, examines the life of Catharine Tait, wife of Bishop Tait. Despite the personal tragedy of losing five daughters to scarlet fever, she became a pioneer amongst clergy wives and was a remarkable woman in her own right.

As well as running the household, she involved wealthy women in charitable work through the Ladies’ Diocesan Association in London and introduced the novelty of garden parties to Fulham Palace.

Details:  £8/£6.40 for unemployed adults.  Booking recommended, click here to book  This event will take place in the Jessie Mylne Education Centre.
