Iron Maidens W.I.
Sat, 15 May 2021
19:30 – 21:00 BST

We are delighted to welcome the inimitable Rosie Garland, aka Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen, for an evening with the lady behind the fangs

Novelist, cabaret artiste, poet, post-punk lead singer with the March Violets and all-round strong female character.

Rosie will join The Iron Maidens W.I. for an informal event to share her interesting and meandering path through life so far, from writing poetry about "What Girls Do in the Dark" to performing at goth gigs and burlesque festivals, beating throat cancer and writing three award winning novels: "The Palace of Curiosities" which takes readers into the freak show scene of Victorian London; "Vixen" set in the medieval Devon countryside during the black death; and "The Night Brother" who explores identity and sexual equality in Manchester during the late 19th century.

The Iron Maidens WI are a branch of the Women's Institute on Wirral, a WI with a difference. We are one of the so-called 'New Wave' of WIs and are a very diverse and welcoming group of women.
