Suffragette centenary event 28th May

Bradford Council are celebrating the centenary of Representation of the People Act on the anniversary of the landmark 1908 suffragette rally that took place on Shipley Glen - 'Hats Off Forward Together' on Monday 28th May 11.30am-4pm.

A fun, family event we anticipate over a thousand people will march from Roberts Park to Shipley Glen via the Cable Tramway and join in a celebration on the Glen with stalls, street entertainment, speeches and stage performances.

We invite you to be part of this event - with a stall and/or a speaker from your organisation on our event stage.

If you or your organisation is concerned with issues related to gender equality or women's rights, historically or currently, and you would like the opportunity to speak briefly on our stage, please contact Jenny Wilson, who is the Creative Producer for the event by emailing jenny@irregulararts.com by Tuesday 8th May.

If you are interested in having a stall at this event, please contact Karen Lewis for details. You can bring relevant information stalls, stalls selling craft items and wares or food/cakes (subject to your own insurances). We cannot guarantee all applicants a stall on the day, but please submit details of what you would like to bring by emailing Karen no later than Tuesday 8th May karen.lewis@bradford.gov.uk.
