HISTORY enthusiasts are invited to a free lecture on the impact of evacuation on wives and mothers during World War Two at The Hive next month.

Professor of cultural history at the University of Worcester Maggie Andrews will give a talk entitled Nationalising Hundreds and Thousands of Women: Femininity, Domesticity and Motherhood in World War Two Evacuation at 5.30pm on Wednesday, June 4.

Professor Andrews is one of the BBC’s regional experts for its series of coverage commemorating the centenary of the First World War and has written a book entitled The Home Front: Images, Myths and Forgotten Experiences, which will be published later this year.

Tickets are available from the information pod level one of The Hive or the reception at the University of Worcester’s St John’s campus.
