Top Yachting Monthly columnist Libby Purves to lecture at Falmouth museum

Yachting Monthly’s Libby Purves OBE, the well-known and prolific journalist, author and broadcaster, will be lecturing at the Falmouth Maritime Museum on 4 June.

Libby has been something of a sailing fanatic from her early days and has a number of ‘firsts’ under her hat. She was the first female presenter on the BBC’s Today programme and the very first person to broadcast from Beijing in 1978. This renowned presenter for Radio 4 on the Today, Midweek and Learning Curve programmes has an incredible history of tales which will capture any audience.

Her lecture on Wednesday 4 June will focus on Britain, the sea, and the tall ship fleet and is guaranteed to be a fascinating talk.

Tickets are available at £7.50. Please call Emma Hale on 01326 214546 to make a booking.
