Beatrice Cadbury (1884-1976), or Little B, was the youngest daughter of the chocolate manufacturers, who reached an astonishing decision when she was in her thirties to give up all her inherited wealth and share it amongst the Cadbury workers. But it wasn't that simple...


This is an opportunity to hear the fascinating story of a relatively unknown member of the Cadbury dynasty.


Fiona Joseph is a Birmingham-based writer of fiction and non-fiction. She is a graduate of the National Academy of Writing diploma course at Birmingham City University, where she won the '2009 Prize for Fiction'. Her biography of Beatrice Cadbury, 'Celebrating Beatrice: the Cadbury heiress who gave away her fortune', will be released in the autumn.
