Autumn Open Meeting

October 22 @ 10:30 - 17:00

Free

PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY

10.30 – 12.00 : FIBIS experts will be available to answer members’ questions

12.00 – 1.00 : Lunch break

1.15 – 2.15 : “Dear Daisy – the correspondence and memorabilia of Lady Isabella Couchman”
Bob Hindley‘s presentation is rooted in a fascination with the British Raj which began years ago, after hearing the BBC Radio 4 series Plain Tales of the Raj. Later, he purchased a long and fascinating letter from eBay, which had been sent by Francis Couchman in Calcutta to his wife, Isabella, in England. Bob was hooked – and his quest to discover more about this family began in earnest.

2.15- 3.00 : Tea break

3.00 – 4.00 : “A Walk on the (slightly) Wild Side”
Geraldine Charles, one of FIBIS’ founder-members and now a hard-working, long-serving trustee, invites you to join her on a second walk on the slightly wild side of her research meanderings. It follows the very successful first “walk” which was enjoyed at last year’s FIBIS conference. Who knows what we may find on this one. Bring your own chota-pegs and tiffin!
