Event description

Description

Welcome to The Panacea Society, a terribly English cult...

Dilys is a devoted member of The Panacea Society, populated almost entirely by virtuous single ladies.

When she strikes up a friendship with Grace, a new recruit, God finally seems to be smiling upon her. The friends become closer as they wait for the Lord to return to their very own Garden of Eden, and Dilys feels she has found the right path at last.

But Dilys is wary of their leader's zealotry and suspicious of those who would seem to influence her for their own ends. As her feelings for Grace bud and bloom, the Society around her begins to crumble. Faith is supplanted by doubt as both women come to question what is true and fear what is real...

Meet Claire McGlasson, ITV journalist and debut author, as she takes us into Dilys' world, a world familiar to lots of us who live in Bedford and have grown up with the story of The Panacea Society, a milenarian religious group founded in our town 100 years ago.

We are delighted to hold this event at The Basement at Bunyan, a location that features in the story. Ticket price includes a copy of the beautiful hardback book, which Claire will be signing on the night.
