Celebrating Women's Right to Vote

Processions is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women and we're delighted to be one of the 100 organisations, creating 100 banners to mark the occasion. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, we are inviting women* and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century.


In response to the extreme weather conditions we had to close from Wed 28 Feb to Sun 4 Mar, leaving lots of disappointed customers. However, we are delighted that some of the cancelled events have now been rescheduled and with tickets are being honoured for the new dates we hope that you can join us!
