Summer Ladies Luncheon with Sharon Wright

£44.00 per person

Aeronaut to Her Majesty: The White-Knuckle World of Margaret Graham

We are pleased to invite you to the next Ladies Luncheon held on Monday 18th July, where we will welcome back Guest Speaker, Sharon Wright, Author and Journalist.

The event will begin at midday with an arrival welcome glass of Prosecco or freshly squeezed orange juice, followed by Sharon’s talk which will commence at 12.30pm.  A delicious seasonal three-course meal will follow, with one glass of wine per person and coffee with petit fours to finish. 

Sharon will be sharing her story of the fearless balloonist Margaret Graham, a Victorian superstar. Although Margret was the first British woman to fly solo and an accomplished aeronaut, she was more famous for her spectacular accidents. The 19th-century adventures of the disaster-prone diva made history, grabbed headlines and astonished the nation. Though she frequently caused havoc, you really could not keep a good woman down. Hold on tight as Sharon takes you on an unforgettable ride through the life of indefatigable Mrs Graham, self-styled ‘Aeronaut to Her Majesty’.

Please email your interest or any enquiries to Sarah at or call 01342 820265 between 9.30am-2.30pm to book your slot via card payment.

We look forward to welcoming you all soon! 

£44.00 per person.
