The Wonderful Women of Gibside

Strong women have been hugely significant in the history of Gibside, from Lady Elizabeth Bowes, the pickaxe wielding firebrand who fought to build the family’s fortunes, to the 20th century Elizabeth who refused the proposal of an heir to the throne and went on to save the estate for the nation.

On International Women’s Day, come and hear local author and historian Val Scully tell the rich and varied stories of six Bowes women whose lives span 300 years of Gibside’s history.

Our evening talks are really popular and Val’s last International Women’s Day talk sold out quickly.
