LOCAL historian Martin Peagam will talk about women associated with Middlesbrough who should perhaps be ‘placed on a pedestal’, as part of Middlesbrough Local History Month.

The talk will take place on Saturday, May 27 from 2.30pm-3.30pm, at Middlesbrough Central Library.

With fundraising ongoing for the Eighth Plinth campaign, which will see the erection of a statue commemorating Ellen Wilkinson MP – the first female statue in the town – the talk will look at other notable local women, some famous, others less well-known.
