Strong Women Family Day

In 1926 boxer Annie Newton challenged people who said women shouldn’t box by asking if it was “half as hard work as scrubbing floors? Is it any more risky than working in a munitions factory?”

Our family event celebrates strong women and girls past and present: from Annie Newton to Nicola Adams, the courage of the suffragettes and the ‘munitionettes’, and every woman who has ever scrubbed a floor.

Visit our exhibition and enjoy games and activities, fascinating stories, and demonstrations by sports clubs.

Sunday 9 September, 11am - 3pm, venue TBC
