Event Details

Mrs. Jisbella Lyth was the village postmistress from 1930 until the early 1950s; we will discover details about her life and the village during this wartime period. She became friends with George Bernard Shaw, and it seems she inspired his popular play “Village Wooing”.  Extracts from the memoir will be read by members of SHAW2020 the actors’ company affiliated to The Shaw Society
