Women won the vote 100 years ago this week. We assume the campaign for enfranchisement was all about the militant Suffragettes. But what finally won the hearts and minds of parliament and the people was an astonishing six-week suffrage march – the ‘Great Pilgrimage’ – involving thousands of ordinary, forgotten men and women.

One of its starting points was Newcastle, and this lecture will tell its story.

Seats to this event are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
