The Pankhursts: Suffragette City

Christabel: suffragette icon, arrested at the Free Trade Hall, locked in Strangeways.

• Sylvia: suffragette icon, joshed with Lenin, befriended Haile Selassie. MI5 called her “the tiresome Miss Sylvia Pankhurst”.

• Emmeline: suffragette icon, Independent Labour Party campaigner, Tory Party candidate (not at the same time).

Walk in the footsteps of the family who won women the vote.

Okay, let’s go into it in a little more detail…

In August 1819 at least a dozen people were killed demonstrating for the right to vote at St Peter’s Fields, Manchester.

Nearly a hundred years later, in 1903, the Pankhurst family, disgusted with the Independent Labour Party’s refusal to allow women to use the newly-opened Pankhurst Hall in north Manchester, founded the Women’s Social and Political Union to campaign for the right of women to have the vote in parliamentary elections.

"New Manchester Walks are the largest and friendliest group of official tour guides in the city! Let us show you Manchester's hidden gems and secret corners. Our knowledgable and professional guides will bring Manchester's fascinating past to life".

 
It's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have on a Friday or Saturday night
