International Women’s Day at Pankhurst Centre (pictured)
This Friday is International Women’s Day, and what better place to celebrate than at the Pankhurst Centre – named after the famous suffragette dynasty. On Friday afternoon the Centre will be opened up to the visitors, to highlight all the brilliant work their volunteers do and suggest some ways you can get involved too. This open day is also a great opportunity to catch the Centre’s Vote100 exhibition, packed with archive memorabilia from the fight for women’s suffrage, which closes this weekend.
Fri 8 Mar, Pankhurst Centre, Manchester, 60-62 Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9WP, Tel: 0161 273 5673, 1pm – 4pm,
