This event has been rescheduled from 2020. All customers have been contacted regarding refunds/exchanges.


A one-woman performance of live music and theatre by acclaimed singer and songwriter Louise Jordan, charting the rise of working-class suffragette Hannah Mitchell from a remote hilltop farm in the Derbyshire moorlands to Manchester city magistrate. A self-taught, self-made woman, Hannah leaves home aged 14, exchanging one exploitative situation for another. In 1906 Hannah finds herself face to face with Winston Churchill at a public meeting before spending time in Strangeways prison. This show explores one woman’s determination to take power and improve life for those around her.
