Swansea’s Bad Girls

Crime and Prostitution


The National Waterfront Museum, Swansea



After two years of complying with Covid lockdowns and other health regulations, we now see a noticeable relaxation in the rules, especially at our events at the National Waterfront Museum. No longer is it necessary to book a place at our talks and also book admission into the building. No masks need be worn, but if anyone feels more comfortable in continuing to wear a mask, then please do.

  Speaking of our monthly talks, the past months have proved to be an ordeal for the booking of speakers. Because of changing Covid restrictions, talks have been cancelled and then re-booked, then cancelled again and rebooked once more, doubtlessly causing some frustration to those concerned, not least our valiant Programme Secretary Elaine Lloyd. Thanks go to her for her patience.

  We are now, hopefully, back to comparative normality and we look forward to seeing you in each coming month.
