Mrs Gaskell’s Personal Pantheon – with Bob Gamble

Saturday 16 September, 2023, 12:45 pm - 4:00 pm BST

Bob’s book of this title appeared in August 2020 and highlights connections between Unitarian communities across England by following the life and times of Elizabeth Gaskell’s dear friend, Janetta Bishop Mitchell. Janetta’s closeness to the Reverend William Turner of Newcastle upon Tyne emphasises why a correct identification of ‘Miss Mitchell’ is significant to Gaskell biography. This talk has been planned for a long time and had to be cancelled previously due to the pandemic so we are very pleased to be able to hear it at last.

The meeting will take place at Francis Holland School, 39 Graham Terrace, London SW1W 8JF. Doors open at 12.45 – do bring a packed lunch to eat before the talk starts at 2.00 pm. Tea and coffee will be available afterwards and contributions of cake, etc, to go with these are very welcome!

All are welcome, both members and non-members. We ask for a £5 donation to cover our expenses.

Please note that this meeting takes place on the THIRD Saturday, rather than our usual second Saturday!
