Talk on Lady Ishbel Aberdeen and the women who inspired her

January sees the first of a series of talks being given in Haddo House in 2020 – and it promises to be a real treat. Art Historian, Heather Carroll, will be giving a talk on the life, work and influences of Lady Ishbel Aberdeen. This talk has been inspired by a series of photographs and portraits compiled by Ishbel Aberdeen herself.

Ishbel Aberdeen was a lady of influence who didn’t just sit around and write letters; she was actively involved in setting up an extraordinary number of social and medical reforms and was a member of the suffragist movement.

Her whole life she fought for what she believed in and she made a positive impact on the Victorian and Edwardian world in which she lived, and she worked tirelessly to improve the lives of others.

Join us to find out more about this inspiring and unconventional lady and those who inspired her, on Thursday 9th January 2020 at 4pm.

The tickets are £15 and you can book yours today. All proceedings will go towards the preservation of Haddo House.
