Vote 100: Born a Rebel, Preston on Thursday 18th October 2018
We at Cinema For All have something very special lined up for the first in our five events celebrating the centenary of women’s suffrage.
Join us for a wonderful one-woman play WOMAN ON FIRE from Certain Curtain Theatre Company about the life of Preston’s own legendary suffragette: Edith Rigby.
Accompanying the performance will be a fantastic new short film – commissioned by Cinema for All from the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives – that charts the story of women in British public life over the last 100 years.
Also included in your ticket price will be a cream tea and post-performance discussion with the play’s star and producer
To entertain children during the play, we have collaborated with Manga pros Mayamada to run a free workshop, at which kids can turn their favourite characters from the women’s suffrage movement into the stars of their own comic book! The workshop will be suitable for all ages (parental guidance for the performance is 14+)
The event will take place at The Harris, Preston, on the evening of what would have been Edith's 146th birthday: Thursday 18 October.
See you there, sisters! (and brothers – we don’t bite)
Vote 100: Born a Rebel is supported by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme
