Suffrage tea

19 November, 2017, 1:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

100 years ago Edwardian suffragette campaigners spread their message by holding ‘suffragette teas’, this is your opportunity to join in all the fun they had. Play suffragette board games, view an exhibition, design badges and banners, buy a little jam or sample suffragette themed cakes and chat to those studying and writing about women’s suffrage.

All will take place at Croome Park, a National Trust Property, where you can of course visit the 1940s style canteen or the tea-room in the house after sampling suffrage recipes. 

At Croome you  can also learn about the house’s own Hidden Suffragette Heroine – Sophia Duleep Sing who was a keen member of the Women’s Social and Political Union. Her support for militant suffrage activities involved making marmalade and jam to raise funds, joining parades and refusing to pay taxes including dog licences. Her brother married the daughter of the ninth Earl of Coventry and the owner of Croome Park.


This event is part of the series Suffrage-fest.
