Join a journey of women's suffrage

'Votes for Women' is a title of a town walk in Cirencester being organised by the Corinium Museum when people can find out more about the suffrage movement.

The walk, which is being led by Sue Jones, will take place on Thursday, June 20, from 10.30am-11.30am.

Walkers can see the place where Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, who led the suffragette movement to eventually give women the right to vote, was photographed on her visit to the town in July 11.

Sue will lead people on a journey of women's suffrage and explore the stories of the battles faced by local women who were fighting for the vote.

The walk lasts no more than an hour. Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a raincoat! Meet at the museum.

The walk is limited to 15 people. The cost is £7.25 per adult, £6.25 members. Booking is recommended.

Another 'Votes for Women' walk is being organised on Wednesday, August 28, from 10.30am to 11.30am.
