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.

  1. Hello 🙂 is there any chance of more tours coming? There are 5 of us who live in the Montepeloer/Hove area who would love to do a tour..Cheers.


    • Hi Grace! Thanks for getting in touch. These blue plaque tours were put together for the Mayor’s Charities this summer. At the moment there is one date left – August 14th, but there are fewer than 5 spots left. I’m going to speak to them about doing another one in early September as a lot of people are asking about them and I’m keeping numbers low. I’m very happy to do the tour for you and your friends at a time of your choice if you like as I take private bookings. As you all live in the area I do a general women’s history walk around Hove too, as well as Brighton and Kemptown. If you’re interested, just email me at
      Otherwise just watch my website for news of any forthcoming tours. Thanks again for getting in touch, I appreciate your interest. Best wishes, Louise
