This event is in two parts - concert lecture at The Foundling Museum and then Deptford's Piehouse for DJ sets.
Berta Joncus would be thrilled if you could attend the official launch of her book Kitty Clive, or The Fair Songster.
Who was Kitty Clive? Eighteenth-century London's top singer-actress whom audiences adored, an activist and feminist whom critics hated, a career women who commanded the skills of her greatest peers, from Handel to Henry Fielding. Yet she’s gone unnoticed until now – why? Find out the story behind the Fair Songster.
