Help us raise money for Brighton’s first ever women’s history festival

Pankhurst ArrestedFree University Brighton wishes to raise £1000 for the city’s first ever festival dedicated to women in history. The one-day event on 14 March 2015 will mark International Women’s Day celebrations and launch a year-long women’s history project to promote positive female role models within schools and the wider community.

The event will feature fascinating, hidden histories of extraordinary and pioneering women such as Brighton and Hove suffragettes, the African Princess in Brighton and women who inspired the trade union movement. There will also be guided walks, workshops, activities for children and an interactive exhibition.

Can you donate £5 or more to support the event or £50 or more become a named sponsor? If so please click here for our crowdfunding page. In kind donations of things we can sell will also be gratefully received.

Thank you!
