Sarah Guppy: the first woman to patent a bridge and the first to formally design one. She also patented a breakfast machine and an exercise bed, had 6 children and married Charlie Coote, her second husband, when she was 66 – and he was 31. Oh yes - and mentored young IK Brunel with that winning entry for the Clifton Bridge Competition. And possibly more.
With new revelations about a truly remarkable woman living at an extraordinary time, Sarah Guppy: The Bridge, The Bed, The Truth opens at the Hen & Chicken, Bedminster (Tues & Wed, 6 & 7 November 8.30pm) then the Create Centre, Hotwells (Thur & Fri 8 & 9 November, 4pm and 6.30pm).
The show lasts an hour and all tickets are £10.
