The Stuart Low Trust are running various events throughout August.

SLT’s Music Appreciation Classes – Thursday 2nd & 16th September

Share and talk about music you enjoy with others! We will listen to music and talk about what specific songs mean to you, their history and maybe some fun facts. Participants will have a big part in choosing the music we listen to and discuss.  Each session will follow a theme, e.g. Songs from your childhood, Songs that never fail to make you happy or specific musical genres and composers. Participants on the call will take it in turns to bring in music and share with the group. The session will end with a fun music quiz around that theme.  Delivered by Cici on Zoom.

SLT’s Friday Evening Event – An Illustrated Talk with Historian Lee Jackson: ‘At your convenience: The Curious History of the Victorian Public Toilet’ – Friday 24th September

The Victorians were famously obsessed with hygiene – ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’ – bringing public baths, sewers and soap to the urban masses. But they had a peculiar blind spot – the public toilet.

Historian Lee Jackson explains how finding a place to ‘spend a penny’ in Victorian London was never an easy business and how it was only at the very end of the nineteenth century, after a campaign by Victorian feminists, that Londoners finally obtained some relief. Followed by a Q & A, delivered on Zoom.
