Event description

Description

You are invited to play Lines And Ladders with Kirsty Surgey, a PhD researcher from the University of Sheffield.

A game of family histories - a chance to share stories - a genealogical journey of excitement and disappointment that takes place at a table in a café...

This free event is part of a PhD research project investigating the sharing of personal stories in public spaces. During the game, Kirsty will be sharing some stories about her adventures in family history and you will be given opportunities to share your own stories.

Places are extremely limited - so please book a free ticket if you want to take part!

This is a micro-audience performance; you will be playing a family history board game with Kirsty and a maximum of 2 other audience-participants.

Please read the detailed information sheet at https://heardofcats.co.uk/lines-and-ladders to understand how this performance event will be documented and used within the research project.

Before the game starts, you will be asked to sign a consent form. The game can be played by people aged 6 and above, but if you are under 18 you will only be allowed to play with a parent or carer, who must sign a consent form for you.

If you arrive later than 10 minutes after the advertised start time your place may be given to someone else.

Any questions? Please do not hesitate to email: kmsurgey1@sheffield.ac.uk

For anyone who is fascinated by family stories, intrigued by genealogy and loves board games - book a free ticket now - places are limited!
