Weaving Women’s Stories (Performance)

November 16, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Explore the connections between storytelling and textile-making in women’s lives from ancient Greece to modern London. Come along and enjoy the stories of our craftivist foremothers in artefacts and poetry from the past; hear the voices of these ‘subversive stitchers’ with an evening performance from By Jove Theatre, introduced by experts on ancient craft.

This event consists of a spoken-word performance from By Jove Theatre, introduced by expert researchers on the ancient world.

Doors open 7.30pm; performance starts 8pm. The performance will last for approximately one hour, after which you are invited to join the performers and experts for informal conversation and a drink at the bar, or to try your hand at weaving on our replica ancient loom.

This is a licensed venue and the event is suitable for audiences aged 18+. Please be advised that the performance may allude to themes (e.g. sexual violence) which some may find upsetting.
