Intrepid Women: Inspiring Journeys

An afternoon following the adventures of women in history who ventured to foreign lands for Bagshaw Museum's celebration of International Women's Day.

Pack your bags, don your walking boots, tighten your corset and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Join the Victorian women who climbed the alps, trekked the Himalayas and explored the vast plains of Africa.

Historical costume designer Meredith Towne will help you step back in time.

Meet Amelia Oldroyd, the daughter of a Dewsbury mill owner who joined Flinders Petrie's excavations in Egypt and view the artefacts she collected.

Amy Downes is an archaeologist working for the British Museum's Portable Antiquities Scheme in West Yorkshire and will help bring the celebration of intrepid women up to date.

Tea and cake will make your afternoon complete!
