Women and War: the West End and the Western Front

22 November, 2017, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


A few days after the outbreak of the First World War, women began setting up organisations to help those in need—organisations that grew and diversified throughout the war years. Take part in a special living literature walk from Westminster to Covent Garden that explores the work of women in wartime through site-specific performances, autobiographical writing and new work commissioned by Dr Naomi Paxton and feminist production hub Scary Little Girls.

Please book onto a specific walk as numbers are limited to 15 in each time slot.

Each walk will last approximately 75 minutes, and will end in the Covent Garden area.

For event information, please contact Naomi Paxton at paxtonn@parliament.uk
Please be aware that tickets for the walk starting at 2:40pm have sold out. If you’d like to attend the walk at this time, please register interest by signing up to the waiting list.
