Mrs Beeton, My Sister

Alison Neil has been an actress for 30 years and told us the fascinating story of Mrs Beeton’s life, playing the part of her sister.

The Homes and Gardens sub-committee had arranged the afternoon at Tarvin Community Centre on Saturday, 23 September and the one hour play was followed by a sumptuous afternoon tea for the 150 members who attended the event.

It was a really enjoyable afternoon of meeting friends and a lovely tea.

The story of Mrs Beeton’s life was told during the ‘One Woman Show’ by actress Alison Neil who told us about Isabelle Beeton’s life as one of 21 children who lived in the stands of Epsom Racecourse.  By the time she died at the age of only 28 she had had 8 children, only two of which survived, and written the book of household management, edited books and magazines and travelled to Europe many times, speaking French and German fluently.

A Fantastic Afternoon. Thank you to Mary and her Home & Gardens Committee, they worked so hard and provided the most superb food.
