On February 20 1913, a group of women blew up Lloyd George’s Surrey home. No one was in the house, which was still being built, but it showed just how far the suffragettes were prepared to go in fighting the establishment to win votes for women.
That incident is one of many acts of militant suffrage depicted in Suffragette, which is our next Flix in the Stix film performance on Sunday 10th April at 7.30pm
Starring Carey Mulligan as Maud Watts, a working class washerwoman turned politically engaged freedom fighter, it offers a glimpse into the battle waged by Emmeline Pankhurst (played by Meryl Streep) and her followers. We watch as Maud is drawn into the movement and meets many of the leading suffragettes in her quest for a more egalitarian society.
Tickets £5 from the centre office or Robert Leech Estate Agents, in the High Street.
