How To Have Fun At Work with Lynne Parker


Exploring our Heritage with Gillian Perry and Harriet Braine

Season 1, Ep. 19

Lynne Parker explores how heritage and humour combine to memorable effect with Gillian Perry MBE, author and co-founder of the Anne Frank Trust UK, and comedian Harriet Braine, winner of the 2016 Funny Women Stage Award. Gillian regularly lectures on the life and legacy of Ann Frank, and has worked to bring communities together, often against cultural divides. Harriet takes heritage to a whole comedic level with her silly songs about art history and departed historic figures. There’s consensus about comedy bringing history to life and how there’s humour to be found in even the darkest of memoirs.
