Tales of Adventure

Beth French from the series First Women UK by Anita Corbin

Join Sally Kettle, First Woman to row the Atlantic twice, Elspeth Beard, First Woman (UK) to ride a motorcycle round the world, and Beth French, First Woman to swim the 26 miles between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, for an evening of stories and inspiration.

From sharks and broken bodies to hurricanes and heatwaves, these three women share experiences of facing fears, breaking boundaries and the power of inner grit and determination.

Unwind with a glass of wine and take the chance to see the 100 First Women Portraits exhibition after-hours.

Doors open at 6.45pm, talk starts at 7.30pm.
