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.
Over 6 weeks, a class of children aged 9 and 10 years met with older residents of Bath to explore the Bath Suffragettes’ story. They created their own rosettes and banners, designed a memorial garden and planted pots with themed flowers to mark the anniversary. The project culminated with a procession along the Royal Crescent.
No. 1 Royal Crescent hosted a touring project which enabled visitors to hear the ﬁrst community archive collection of oral histories about the activism of women in the South West.
