Votes for Women Garden Party (and museum birthday party!)

Join us for a garden party marking 90 years since women won the vote at the age of 21 (and our third birthday!)

We’ll be celebrating the ‘flappers’ who voted for the first time in 1929 and the young women who followed them by dancing down the decades: watch demonstrations of the charleston, the jitterbug, rock n roll, and the twist, and maybe try some steps yourself!

Enjoy some refreshments, make a suffragette sash, and visit our exhibition about women’s fight for equality in the workplace from the suffragettes to the Ford Dagenham strikers. 

Saturday 28 July, 2 - 5pm, Barking Park (7 mins walk from Barking Station) Book a free ticket on Eventbrite and let your friends know you're coming by joining the Facebook event.
