An illustrated talk about the pioneering female founders of the RSPB, and the bitter battle waged against fashionable women and feathered hats. Didsbury is rightly proud of Emily Williamson – but what became of her 1889 campaign to save the birds?

Enjoy a glass of prosecco with the author before taking your seats in the beautiful red room of the Old Parsonage. Tessa's talk will be followed by questions and a book signing of 'Mrs Pankhurst's Purple Feather' (available at special discounted price of £16, rather than £20).
