Georgette does a series of “one woman shows” about important Norfolk women in history. These are essentially plays which last about 45 – 50 minutes each so they are suitable as the speakers slot for meetings. They can also be adapted for schools.

Georgette comes in costume and in character with appropriate props. The shows are researched, written and performed by Georgette.

The cost is £50 plus 30p a mile from Wymondham.
