On Saturday 25th November 2017 Ann Rachlin will be talking on Ellen Terry ‘The First Superstar’. The talk takes place in Winchelsea New Hall at 6.30 for 7.15pm and is a fundraising event for The Friends of the Ancient Monuments, the charitable organisation which, supports Winchelsea Corporation in the maintenance of the Ancient Monuments in the Town and the Museum.
Ellen Terry ‘glamorous, charismatic, infamous’, was the greatest female actor of her day – the most famous woman in England after Queen Victoria – and lived in Winchelsea in the late nineteenth century before moving to Smallhythe Place.
Tickets for the talk cost £10 and are available from Winchelsea Farm Kitchen. There will be a pay bar and complimentary canapes will be served before the talk.
