Suffrage-fest | University of Worcester

Suffrage talk and taste

A talk exploring the significance of food, cooking and recipes for many suffrage campaigners with an opportunity to taste some recipes included in their fund raising cookery books. There will also be the opportunity to see inside St. Swithun’s Church, an impressive Grade I listed Georgian building located in the heart of Worcester. It has an outstanding interior, retaining all the furnishings of its time, including box pews, early English organ and rare three decker pulpit.

Suffrage tea

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.
