Event description

Description


Clara is an upcoming 2020 TV drama about an iconic figure who lived in 1850s Wakefield. Clara Clarkson was a suffragist, an abolitionist and a lover and protector of women in the Merrie City.

Clara struggles to balance her relationship with companion Harriet and what is expected from her in Victorian society, dodging the charms of doting widower Henry and the vehement disapproval of her mother Sarah.

Clara and her friends defied social convention, living covertly as part of a nurturing Queer community localised around the Wakefield Unitarian Chapel.

Wakefield’s ‘great and good’, fearing scandal if secrets came to light, petitioned to have Clara’s journals destroyed. Out of a total of 40 only 4 survived, which were de-coded and re written in the book ‘Merrie Wakefield’ by Ann Jacques, a distant relative. Now, 130 years after Clara’s death, her voice endures and her story will be told.

Hosted by Karen Wright - beloved Wakefield Bake Off Queen with a Q & A with some of the actors, an exhibition about Clara's life and a 'drinks reception' before the stars arrive, it's an opportunity to dress to impress as this premier is going to be full of glitz and glam!

First showing - doors open 3pm for a drinks reception and chance to look at the exhibition about Clara's life. Stars arrive for 3.20pm. Audience seated 3.30pm. Screening of 'Clara' followed by a Q & A and photographs with the stars.

Second showing - doors open for 7pm for a drinks reception and a chance to look at the exhibition about Clara's life. Stars arrive for 7.20pm. Audience seated 7.30pm. Screening of 'Clara' followed by a Q & A and photographs with the stars.
