Add to Planner


Residents and visitors are invited to join a procession to a special performance on Lincoln High Street to mark 100 years of votes for Women.

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre are inviting residents and visitors to the city to meet at St Martins Square, and then join them in a procession that makes its way down to Speaker’s Corner ahead of a performance event that marks the national centenary.

The event is the final celebration in a series of workshops and public talks which have formed the year-long One Hundred Project. Supported by Arts Council England, the project has been designed to build confidence, and empower women, as well as highlighting the current issues in equality that affect everyone today.

Highlights of the project have included Suffragette-inspired art workshops, MP Karen Lee speaking on her experience of working in a male dominated profession alongside Senior Lecturer in Engineering Rebecca Margetts, and founder of Lincoln’s Women in the Arts Gemma Baker, and public speaking and self-defence for women classes.

The procession will close with a specially created performance, made by women based in the city who have been involved in the project in different ways over its year-long programme.
