Peggy Knight: A Monologue by Lesley Smith

Tuesday 8 October 19.30
At Lichfield Cathedral

In 1944, a young shorthand typist at the electricity board in North London was parachuted into Nazi occupied France. She was a member of the Special Operations Executive and had only received two weeks training and one practice parachute jump. Peggy Knight’s extraordinary story is little known but now is the time to find her.

Lesley Smith has been curator of Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire since 2000. She has appeared in over 120 television programmes and is well known for her highly entertaining and informative historical portrayals.

Tickets £11 (including a glass of wine) are available online or from the gift area inside the Cathedral.
