To whet your appetite here is Ed Glinert’s account of the story of the Suffragette Attack on Manchester Art Gallery, 3 April 1913…
On 3 April 1913 three suffragettes attacked a number of pictures at Manchester Art Gallery. The incident occurred at 9 o’clock in the evening when Annie Briggs, Evelyn Manesta and Lillian Forrester cracked the glass of several paintings, including Lord Leighton’s 1887 work Last Watch of Hero (pictured) and Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Astarte Syriaca (1877).
The tour is led by Ed Glinert, one of the monastery’s official guides and joint founder of New Manchester Walks.
