Travels in Southern England – The Bath Literature Festival

Days 1 and 2

2 March 2015

I am in the city of Bath visiting the city’s Literature festival. Yesterday I went to a talk on Sophia: Princess, Suffragette given by BBC Radio 4 presenter Anita Anand at the Masonic Hall. It was a strange place to give such a talk. Ms Anand stood in front of the Masonic throne in a room surrounded by Masonic shields and other symbols. I suspect that the Suffragettes would have been horrified by the surroundings. However, it was a nice talk given by an expert who had done a great deal of research on the life of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, heir to the Kingdom of the Sikhs, exiled in the early 1900s to the Victorian court.
