Dame Edith ‘face to face’

THE Scarborough Sitwell Society is holding an open evening devoted to Dame Edith Sitwell.

The event, on Thursday September 29, has been given the title Edith Face To Face and will be held at the Creative Industries Centre, Woodend, the former home of the remarkable literary family, starting at 7.30pm.

The main focus on Edith will be to show the televised interview conducted by John Freeman in 1959, an occasion which showed her robust attitudes, and highlighted her singular sense of dress and the bold accoutrements which were expected of her.
