KATE Adie will be heading to the Courtyard in Hereford this September, where she will talk about women, war and bombs.

In particular, the well-known journalist will discuss her latest book, “Fighting on the Home Front, the legacy of women in World War One”.

Cllr Harry Bramer, Herefordshire Council's cabinet member for contracts and assets said: "I am absolutely delighted that Kate Adie will be visiting Hereford, giving what promises to be a fascinating talk on women and the war, and a fitting end to the Rotherwas ROF Front Line Duty Project.

"It has been such an important project for the history of Hereford and also to highlight the important role that munitions workers played in the war effort."

He added: "Thousands of women worked at the Rotherwas munitions factory site during both world wars, and the Rotherwas ROF Front Line Duty Project, working with the Rotherwas Munitions Group, aim to compile a complete record of their names and stories."

The Rotherwas ROF Front Line Duty Project is a two-year project with Heritage Lottery Funding, honouring the contribution of the, mainly, women who worked at the munitions factory in Rotherwas, Hereford. It will create a digital archive about the Rotherwas Royal Ordnance Factory and its workers.

The date for the diary is Tuesday, September 5, at 7.30pm

Kate will also be signing copies of her books.

Tickets are available now from The Courtyard on 01432 340555.
