Egyptian gods and suffragettes: it’s the Ragged University

The Ragged University comes to Central Library’s mezzanine on Friday 17th August for a special double bill of talks starting at 1.30pm.

First, Makmed the Miller presents “The Grief of Isis” in the form of a spectacular artwork with accompanying music.

Then, after a break for tea, coffee and biscuits Peter Barratt will talk about the remarkable life of his grandmother – the Suffragette Alice Hawkins.

There is no charge and no tickets to order – just turn up on the day.

The Ragged University provides a platform for the free exchange of knowledge and skills in social spaces like pubs, cafes and libraries. It is about getting people who love what they do to share knowledge and skills in an informal setting so we can all enjoy it. It is not about CV’s, it’s not about accreditation, it’s not about making money; it’s about wanting to learn more!
