Women’s Archive Wales at Glyndŵr University

May 5 @ 9:30 AM 4:30 PM

Women’s Archive Wales at Glyndŵr

Women’s Archive Wales have organised a free special day school entitled “Setting the Record Straight: Discovering the History and Heritage of Women in North-East Wales“.

The event will look at female history and heritage in this area. It will run in conjunction with the History Department at Glyndŵr University.

Register through info@womensarchivewales.org

We hope to attract interest in the event from among Glyndŵr students, WAW members in the area and from the general community in north-east Wales. County Archive Offices, museums and libraries are raising awareness of this pioneering event. They also invite local colleges and schools to participate.

There will be a fascinating and varied line-up of talks. The subject include the Denbigh Asylum, the lives of women working in factories such as Courtaulds, Johnson’s Fabrics and Graessers Salicylates. We will also feature the history of women’s football teams in the area. Finally, we will look at the women who have represented Northeast Wales in the Welsh Assembly/Senedd and others.

There will also be discussion panels and films to illustrate aspects of women’s history and heritage. It will be a lively and engaging programme with something for everyone. There will be ample time to chat and network too.

The event will feature exhibitions and a roadshow for people to bring any material relevant to women’s history to show our experts. In particular, items related to sport and the Women’s Institute movement.

It promises to be a very eventful day. We are grateful to Kathryn Ellis and Peter Bolton for facilitating it at Glyndŵr University.

This is a free event.
