Margaret Graham, daring diva of the skies, 19th century darling and the ‘Only English Female Aeronaut’ as she dubbed herself.
She and husband George were the most well-known ballooning couple during the craze that swept the nation, once stopping a House of Commons sitting, so keen were MPs to witness their flight.
Hear about the records she set; how she cheated death many times, dying at 76, unlike young like Lily Cole, who escaped abuse only to die flying near Haworth.
Discover these amazing females in this one-woman show and make your own peg balloonista!
£10, available online and on the door.
