"1887 - Ellen Thomson became the only woman legally hanged in Queensland.
Although Ellen could neither read nor write, it was reported in The Brisbane Courier at the time of her execution, that she was a woman of ‘rude eloquence’.
Margaret Deakin has researched Ellen Thompson's tragic story and, together with Glenda Ashleigh and other speakers, will give a living history performance of Ellen's background and her story leading to her death.
Saturday 10 June 2pm - 3pm, afternoon tea will be provided after the presentation. Members $10, non-members $12.

The Redland Museum is fortunate to have a fully working Blacksmith Shop. Most Saturdays you will find a smithy or two, lead by our head Blacksmith Paul Jones, working on a new project for the museum. The current work is to build a screen for the side of the blacksmith shop; call in and see them at work.
