Tue 12 Sep The Strangest Battle


Spend an afternoon back in the Saltaire of 1908 for an entertainment of talk and song to honour the fight for women’s rights in West Yorkshire. This is accompanied by a delicious Edwardian-style afternoon tea, created by Jeanette’s Cakery. Enjoy stories of local and often forgotten heroines, the Shipley Glen rally and stormy conflicts within the movement. Guests in costume are particularly welcome with a prize for the most outstanding picture hat. Music includes political, drawing room ballads and music hall songs. Plenty for a wide audience to enjoy.
