Talk: The Shop Girls
Tuesday, 9 January, 2018, 7:30 pm–9:00 pm£3
“The Shop Girls, the true story of Cambridge’s own Mr Selfridge who at one time lived in Mill Road.” This is a talk by Ellee Seymour about shop workers who worked in an elegant ladies department store in Cambridge between the 1940s-60s. The store, called Heyworth’s, had all but faded from living memory until Ellee began her research – and discovered a family secret that Herbert Heyworth had taken to his grave. The talk takes place at Ross Street Community Centre. Doors open at 7pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm. Fully accessible venue, tea and biscuits provided after the talk.
