Thursday, 14th September 2023

7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Steven Hill Methodist Church

Admission £3 for members and £4 for non-members. Refreshments are included.


Join Rivelin Valley Conservation Group at our Open Meeting to hear Anne, The Bustle Lady to give her talk ‘Victorians importing alien plants’. Anne is a historian who specialises in the years 1875 to 1888 when The Bustle Dress was the height of fashion. She covers social, scientific, economic, political and artistic history and much more, and is constantly researching new material for her wide range of talks. Her talk will be on the plants the Victorian plant-hunters brought back, and examines the unfortunate consequences of introducing some of them to our gardens.

Refreshments will be available after the talk.

All welcome, no need to book.
