The Life and Times of Madam Geneva: EngAGE in the Afternoon - 1.30 pm

Annie James explores the 18th century "Gin Craze" and the government’s attempts to suppress it's influence on society. It utilizes the paintings of William Hogarth, which depict the effects of vast consumption of Gin. As we are now seeing the revival of the "Gin Palace", and a vast array of different types and flavours of Gin, will we also see similar repercussions? Or is this just a light-hearted fashion statement? Free (donations welcomed) booking required.
Please speak to library staff or call 0345 045 5225 for a ticket.
