Gallery Talk - Mrs. Pankhurst's Purple Feather - Thursday 19th March - 7pm (Members)
When Mrs. Pankhurst stormed the House of Commons with her crack squad of militant suffragettes in 1908, she wore on her hat a voluptuous purple feather.
This is the intriguing story behind that feather, the rise and fall of 'murderous millinery' and the birth of the all-female RSPB.
We are delighted to welcome author Tessa Boase to the Museum to present a talk on her book. Tessa will be signing copies after the talk.
Tickets £7.00 on the door, in advance online (Member £5.00), includes a glass of Prosecco.
