Tea with Mrs. Thrale...?

Saturday 9th March 2024 4:30pm-6:00pm

The Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum will be marking International Women’s Day with a special event written and performed by popular local storyteller Christine Genders.

Christine Genders transforms into Hester Piozzi, the 18th century diarist, poet, author, and great friend of Samuel Johnson. Piozzi’s writings provide a fascinating insight into the experiences of women during this period.

Pre-booking is essential for this extremely popular theatrical performance.

Tickets cost £9 per person. A cup of tea or coffee is included in the ticket price.

Doors open at 4:30pm, the performance starts at 5:00pm and lasts approximately 1 hour.

We recommend that this event is most suited to those aged 14 and above. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

You can book online here, pay in person at the museum’s bookshop, or by calling 01543 264 972.

Please note that the performance will take place on the first floor of the museum, which can only be accessed by stairs. Due to the building’s Grade I listed status we are unable to install a lift.
