Derby City Libraries are hosting a unique open – floor event on 30th August where Alice’s living descendants and researcher Nick Hiley will discuss the case and review significant new evidence.
Join us and discover how a Derby woman who campaigned for workers’ and women’s rights and supported conscientious objectors during WWI was arrested on a charge of attempting to
kill a British Prime Minister. Join the debate on whether they were innocent or guilty. Were the Wheeldons victim to a miscarriage of justice?
Should we, in fact, be proud of this Daughter of Derby?
Derby Mayor, Lisa Higginbottom, will open the event
Venue: Derby Central Library, main entrance
Dates/Times: Thursday 30 August, 7.30 - 9.30pm
Advance booking is advised. Please contact Derby Local Studies Library on 01332 642240 or
