Now open Sundays
We are now open on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 1-4pm
Our first Sunday opening on the 12th March coincided with @Manchester IWD Festival and saw the return of a young women claiming not only to be the third and forgotten daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst but the ‘best one’ to boot. I think her name was Adela … although she looked remarkably like live performance artist (and Pankhurst heritage volunteer) Charlotte McShane.
Coming up on Sunday 26th March where better to bring, quite possibly, the strongest women in your life for Mother’s Day? We will be serving afternoon tea with cakes and scones provided by the Soroptimists and served by our Business Manager.
And as if that is not enough make sure you book Sun. 23rd April. 2pm in your diary for a visit. Dr. Alison Ronan will give a talk and present a short film about the Women’s Peace Crusade of 1917-18, including a re-enactment of a rally held in Alexandra Park, Whalley Range. This is a free event. Copies of Ali’s book about the Crusade will be on sale for £5. Oh, and look out for the Pankhurst tour guides who were moonlighting as extras in the filming, those Pankhurst women get everywhere!
