To commemorate the 1100th anniversary of the death of Aethelflaed, Lady of the Mercians a week long festival will be held in Gloucester, culminating on June 12 2018 with the unveiling of a new monument to this most important and influential woman.

Marketing Gloucester will be coordinating events with the other Citys, Towns and Burghs which have strong historical connections with Aethelflaed. We will be looking for contributions from (among others) Hereford, Bridgnorth (912); Tamworth (913); Stafford (913); Eddisbury (914); Warwick (914); Chirbury (915); Runcorn (915). Leicester, Chester.

If you wish to be involved, we will be planning lectures, Theatre, Art, procession and a renewed archaelogical forensic examination of remains from St Oswalds Priory.  Please contact emily@marketinggloucester.co.uk if you wish to be involved
