The Outspoken Pilgrim

26 May 2023 @ 16:00 17:00 BST

I have been invited to give a lecture recital at the Beverley Early Music Festival about Margery Kempe in this, her anniversary year. Weirdly, it will be in the same venue where I played my Wool Merchant and Harp programme 10 years ago, the marvellously quirky Beverley Guildhall.

Beverley Guildhall a building in a classical style with four classical columns and a portico.

I will chat about Margery’s journeys, her mental health and neurodivergency, the places she visited, life in the fifteenth century for women, how to be a pilgrim and what not to wear. We will sing together from medieval notation and look at images of medieval manuscripts. It’ll be enormous fun!!!
