'Walking Watling Street' is a brand new commission by The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. 

This work explores the political history of the fight for gender equality. The performance will transport the audience to 1913; a pilgrimage from Carlisle to London with 100,000 suffragist pilgrims. The North West branch of the march, called 'The Watling Street Route' 50,000 pilgrims arrived in Hyde Park on 26th July 1913 and the Suffragists turned Asquith's ear. This story deserves wider recognition which this new work aims to do by touring throughout 2018. 

'Watling Street' will be premiered at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal on 30th September as part of The Journey Dance Festival.

Discover the difference between the Suffragettes and the Suffragists.
