The Women Behind the Plaques, Stories of Resilience and Bravery – new tour

I’m doing a brand new walking tour this summer in aid of the Mayor of Brighton & Hove’s charities, exploring the inspiring stories behind some of the women who have recently been commemorated by blue plaques in the city, some who are about to be, and some who I think should be!

Dates: Saturdays 19th June, 10th July, 14th August at 10am and 1pm.

Meeting place Montpellier Crescent near Seven Dials, Brighton to finish approximately 90 minutes later in the Royal Pavilion Gardens. See Eventbrite link below for tickets.

Discover the woman whose house became a beacon to the suffragettes, the famous actress who turned her talents to helping to run women’s hospitals, the heiress who had to choose between a career as a doctor and her family, the first suffragette to give her life for women’s right to vote and the woman who was fighting for equal pay almost 150 years ago, plus some other local women to be proud of.

With Louise Peskett, author of ‘The Fearless and the Fabulous, a Journey through Brighton and Hove’s Women’s History’

In aid of the Mayor of Brighton and Hove’s Charities: Off the Fence, Sussex Heart Charity, Together Co, Brighton Fringe, and Leo House.
