Marchin’ already: Processions 1918 -2018

Last Sunday, we were lucky enough to be part of the 100 year celebration of SOME women obtaining the vote. The event was organised by The Artichoke Trust and aimed to create a living artwork through four parades in the cities of London, Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh. We thought we would share some of the photographs (taken by various members of our group) of the day for anyone who was unable to make the event. It was certainly a day to remember!
