CALLING ALL WOMEN! 6 February 2018 marked one hundred years since the Representation of the People Act in 1918, the legislation that brought voting rights to all men and some women over the age of 30 and paved the way for full democratic equality and Universal Suffrage in 1928. To celebrate this important anniversary, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre will be producing One Hundred; a programme of activities culminating in a mass participatory outdoor event on the evening of 14 December 2018, one hundred years since the first General Election where women could vote. This celebratory event will animate the streets of Lincoln and draw attention to the diverse talent and creativity of the women in our amazing city! This female-led project is still at an early stage, so our first port of call is to have an open meeting, inviting women in our city to come together, share ideas and start thinking about how we can shape this communal celebration. Our first meeting will be held on Wednesday 14 March 6.30pm in Studio 1 at Lincoln Performing Arts Centre – there is no need to book, please just turn up and bring a friend or two! Can’t make this meeting?
