Ramsgate Society Talk by Catriona Blaker on Jane Pugin
21 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Ramsgate Society presents this talk by Catriona Blaker in support of the Ramsgate History Working Group’s ’23 for 23′ celebration which this year is drawing attention to twenty-three leading Ramsgate women, past and present. Jane Pugin is one such woman who married Pugin in 1848 and came to live with him in The Grange, Ramsgate. She was handsome and dignified and did not die until 1909, thus experiencing a whole series of changes and attitudes in Ramsgate and elsewhere.
Catriona’s talk is titled ‘Jane Pugin: a First-Rate Gothic Woman and More’ and will explore how this resourceful woman coped and how she occupied her time, both while married to her illustrious husband and through her long life after. Doors open at 6:30pm and the talk will run from 7pm to 8pm. The room has disabled access and there is on-street parking around the venue of the San Clu Hotel.
It is free to Ramsgate Society members. Everyone is welcomed but a £3 voluntary donation will be requested from non-members. Booking in advance is essential at https://bit.ly/MrsPuginTalk
