A lecture dedicated to the founding of the University will form part of Leicester Cathedral's events marking the centenary of Armistice Day.

She has also worked as a War Memorials Listing adviser for Historic England, as Head of Heritage and Learning at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
