Vote! Littlehampton and the Suffragettes

Wednesday 10 January - Friday 02 March

Community Gallery

Local historian Kevin Page and Littlehampton Civic Society secretary Angela Tester have teamed up with the Museum to tell the fascinating story of Littlehampton and the suffrage movement.

The exhibition will focus on local pioneer of women's rights Mary Neal and the lives of three other suffrage activists, Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, Millicent Fawcett, and Cecily Hale, all of whom had strong links with the town.

On display will be several items owned by Cecily Hale and a striking protest banner from Worthing Museum amongst many other examples of suffragette material.

Come along between 10th January and 2nd March to discover more about the little-known story of Littlehampton’s suffragettes!

Kevin will also be giving a public talk on the exhibition on Saturday 27th January.
