All for the Cause: The Life and Work of Sophia Morrison. With James Franklin.

November 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

In 1880’s the Isle of Man was fast losing its language, songs, stories and more. Manx people were even considering merging the Island with England but one woman in Peel was to change all this. Best known for her ‘Manx Fairy Tales’ Sophia Morrison set about dedicating the last 17 years of her life to preserve anything Manx, which is still with us today. James will trace the story of her life and the impact she had, and still has on the Isle of Man.
