What would the 18th century founder of the Bluestocking Society talk to a 20th century Bath suffragette about? What role did women play in saving and restoring the city of Bath? To mark the centenary of women getting the vote and being able to stand for parliament we present a new performance in a salon at No.1 Royal Crescent where Elizabeth Monatagu and Mary Blathwayt discuss the politics and protest of their day. Experience their discussions and then explore the more recent history of women and protest through the story of the campaigning women of Bath Preservation Trust.

Throughout the holiday periods in 2018, children will be able to have a go at self-led activities. These activities will explore the Georgian salons and the blue stockings, inspiring children to think about how these women of history inspire women to campaign for freedom and equality.
