Victory Breakfast 2018!

By Shirley Ludford On Friday 21st April 2017


I am hoping to organise a celebration breakfast next July, as 2018 is the 90th anniversary of the victory of the women's campaign to achieve universal suffrage (and the 100th anniversary of the introduction of partial women's suffrage). 

The original event was celebrated with a Victory Breakfast held on 5 July 1928 at Hotel Cecil in London (now demolished).  Attended by 250 women, it was symbolic of all the breakfasts given to hunger strikers when they were released from prison.
I’ve talked about this to several women, who all agreed it’s important to recognise the significance of the event, so I would like to replicate it with a similar breakfast, songs and inspiration, at the Swindon Marriott on 5 July 2018, and at the same time raise money for women’s charities in Swindon.
Guests can come in costume from the era if they wish.
