Baroness Alice Bacon’s legacy continues in an afternoon tea event, hosted by The Alice Bacon Trust, Normanton Town Council and Dream Time Creative. Held at Normanton Town Hall, where her Blue Plaque will be placed, the Friday 1st June event, held between 1pm and 4pm will include an official welcoming of the plaque with an unveiling at 3pm.

Guests from the local community will be invited to share their memories and stories of Alice and the Forgotten Women of Wakefield project will be performing poems about her set against the backdrop of an exhibition dedicated to her life and legacy.

The Broadsheet of Alice Bacon is produced by the whole team but special thanks must go to Steve Williams for his design and main article writing. Sarah Cobham provided the editorial comment and the initial ideas/design whilst the photographs of the artifacts have come from the archive collection put together by Sarah and gifted from Valerie and David Box, of Altoffs.
