Emily Inspires! A Concert & Conversation with Reg Meuross, Helen Pankhurst & Penni Blythe

Special event

Sat 8th December, Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum

12noon- 1:15pm £5.00

Celebrating 100 years since the first women achieved the vote, Emily Inspires! brings a lively mix of music and conversation exploring women’s rights to Morpeth with a trio of performers.

Reg Meuross, will be performing a collection of songs about inspirational women.  Reg’s song “Tony Benn’s Tribute to Emily Davison” tells the story of local Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison.  Emily hid in the broom cupboard of the Houses of Parliament over the census weekend of 1911.

Helen Pankhurst, women’s rights activist, academic and author is the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, and granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst.
Penni Blythe of Emily Inspires! is a feminist, activist, writer and storyteller.

The event weaves historical facts with song, poetry and humour, and will provide potent reminders of the people who have stood up for our rights.

Emmeline, Emily – and so many other women who fought for our rights … what do we still fight for, what will the future bring for generations to come?   Come and join in the conversation – which women in your family first voted?
