UNDERSUNG ON THE UNDERCLIFF – Friday 11th August

Parkside

FREE

All Ages

 

Join Richard Smout from IW County Records Office for a talk celebrating some local Hidden Heroes from the past 300 years.  There will be tales of men and women with a local connection whose lives, or whose moment of pain or glory, have been largely forgotten. From a retired lady parachutist, to a victim of mistaken identity, from those who make a stand against fraud, to a tactless opponent of regulation, there are plenty of candidates. Examples from the past can help us consider what is heroism, and what is simply folly? Who would you choose, and what other names would you bring to the table ?

This event is part of the Hidden Heroes project, connecting museums on the island
