Award-winning actress Alison Neil is performing her latest one-woman show – Glowing Bright – at Melmerby Village Hall on Saturday February 18th at 2.30pm.


Alison’s shows bring to life great women of history and this one tells the story of Marie Curie; one of the most famous scientists of all time and the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. An outstandingly talented Polish girl with huge ambitions both for herself and her country, she broke through all the restrictions placed on women at the time.



Her amazing discovery of not one, but two new elements, with her husband Pierre Curie, is an astonishing and well-loved story. The ups and downs of her subsequent turbulent private life, and spectacular work during World War One are perhaps less well known, but equally fascinating.



“Alison’s last visit with her performance of Mrs Beeton, My Sister was both entertaining and informative and I’m confident this new show will be up to her usual high standard,” said Meri Snowdon, the event organiser. “Alison is a story-teller second to none and Marie Curie's amazing life is a story well worth telling.”



Tickets cost £10 and include tea/coffee and biscuits after the performance. There will also be a raffle and an opportunity to ask questions - profits will go to St Mary’s Church, Wath. Tickets are available from Meri Snowdon - merisnowdon@gmail.com and Tel: 01765 640949.
