Talk: Cambridge Banners and Suffrage
10 October, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Exploring the design and composition of suffrage banners
Banners were an essential part of equality protests and the choice of design and material were critical to their success
Friend and Trustee of the Museum of Cambridge Carolyn Ferguson examines suffrage banners and tells the stories of their designers and makers. An illustrated talk that will be of great interest to anyone who wants to find out more about suffrage banners and textiles.
Join us in the Enid Porter Room on Wednesday 10 October to learn more about the manufacture of the banners used during the long struggle for voting equality.
Ticket fee includes admission to the Museum, after the talk, to view our current exhibition At Last! Votes for Women
