Female Sporting Pioneers : the beginnings of organised women’s sport in Victorian Sussex – Wednes 3 August 2016, 5:30-6:30pm

An event at The Keep, Falmer

Local historian Andrew Lusted will explore the beginnings of women’s team games and their formalisation in Victorian England. Perhaps surprisingly, this begins with the local game of stoolball and also features the earliest attempts of women to start playing cricket.

Andrew will highlight the role of the small village of Glynde in the development of both of these sports.

Venue: The Keep, Woollards Way, Brighton, BN1 9BP

Admission: £3.00 Booking is essential. Please pay on the door and arrive at least 15 minutes before the talk
