Join us for a glass of wine and the book launch of ‘The Bras and the Bees’ by F.A. Notley on Tuesday 20th August at 6pm.
The Bras and the Bees: the Extraordinary Life of BJ Sherriff tells Brian’s story. It describes how he experienced the Bristol blitz as a boy, inherited a corset factory from his grandfather and became director of a bra factory in Camborne. When his business was failing – he used to supply M&S and once delivered a consignment by boat to Falmouth – in the recession of the 1970s, he and his wife used materials intended for bras and swimsuits to develop a completely new kind of beekeeping hood, which brought him international recognition.
