The first day of our 2015 festival, Live’n’Local, will start by going back in time!
Saturday, October 10 will find us in the terrific company of the History Magpie, Rachael Hale, for a morning workshop in the Guildhall Museum.
Inspired by the museum’s wonderful collection of artefacts. Rachael will guide you in finding hidden treasures whose stories are waiting to be told and helping you tell them creatively.
Rachael has been a fan of quirky facts and strange stories since she stuck her head up a chimney as a child to see the bread oven. Her love of historical homes, people and places has grown ever since and she’s a regular history and literary writer for Kent Life magazine. When not fighting deadlines or working on her non-fiction book, Rachael loves exploring dusty old buildings, hiding in museums, drinking hot chocolate and writing posts for her Kent history blog, The History Magpie.
