Inspired by: The National Archives
Venue: The London Pavilion, Piccadilly Circus
Dates: 8th to 25th March, 2018
This March we invite you to walk in the shoes of a Suffragette and experience what it was like for those campaigning for suffrage in London, before the partial grant of the vote to women in 1918.
Inspired by the extensive collections of The National Archives, we have re-created three spaces at the London Pavilion, in Piccadilly Circus, including a Suffragette headquarters, a prison and a tearoom.
Join us at our headquarters and take part in our immersive experience where you will be set tasks and confront the difficult decisions faced by those in the movement. Or come along to one of our Suffragette themed classes. To find out more and book tickets please click on the links below.
For the National Trust and The National Archives the project forms part of their wider programmes that commemorate 100 years of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which granted the vote to property-owning women over the age of 30 or graduates voting in a university constituency. It also marks 90 years since the 1928 Amendment of the Representation of the People Act that created equal suffrage between men and women.
