Norwich writer and biographer Phyllida Scrivens reveals the diverse and remarkable lives, both private and civic, of the seventeen women to have held the role of Lord Mayor of Norwich since Ethel Colman in 1923. Drawing on in-depth research and interviews with the nine surviving ladies, The Lady Lord Mayors of Norwich 1923-2017 (Pen and Sword Books, 2018) gives a unique insight into a world full of tradition and ceremony.
