About the event

Watch with the live performance of the incredible tale of Mother Ross. Mother Ross, alias Kit Cavanagh, disguised herself as a man to join the British Army in a brave attempt to try to find her husband who had gone missing at war.

She was a respected and well-loved soldier, serving in both the Nine Years War and the War of the Spanish Succession, until her secret was discovered.

This performance is part of Women's History Month and delivered by History’s Maid, Kate Vigurs.
