East London Suffragette Festival August 2014

Festival starts in just 20 days! 

We have around ten events planned, and we're adding them to the programme page on the website as they are confirmed, and creating Facebook events for all of them too (although we have a bit of a backlog). Highlights include:
  • Women's activism film night in Bethnal Green
  • History picnic in Meath Gardens
  • Sunday lunch at G Kelly's pie and mash shop on Roman Road
  • Suffragette history walk around Bow
And of course our main event at Toynbee Hall on Saturday 9 August, with speakers including Laura Pankhurst, Louise Raw, Nimco Ali and Shahida Rahman, plus suffrage plays, poetry, workshops on creative writing and film-making, plus storytelling, crafts and facepainting for children.
Help us spread the word
Can you print and distribute a few of our flyers and posters in your neighbourhood? Here are the links to download from:
We also need stewards and helpers to come down to Toynbee Hall  for our main event and help run the cake stall and the jumble sale and encourage people to fill in feedback forms. Even if you can only join us for a few hours that would be a big help. Please email 
Our last open meeting before it all kicks off is on Wednesday 16 July from 7pm in the meeting room at the Brady Arts Centre on Hanbury Street in Whitechapel.
We're having our festival afterparty at The Culpeper pub on Commercial Street from 6pm on Saturday 9 August.
