All Points East to host a free day to celebrate 100 years of votes for women

New London festival series All Points East (APE) will mark 100 years since women first got the right to vote with All Points Equal. The one-day event will mark the start of APE In The Neighbourhood, a weekday programme of free events in between APEs two weekends of music in Victoria Park - the end destination of Sylvia Pankhurst’s 1913 and 1914 processions.

There will be free Outdoor Screenings of Suffragette, Made in Dagenham and Moana. The Suffragette screening will start with an immersive rally in partnership with the Museum of London at 3pm and after the film there will be a free, live panel and Q&A with Helen Pankhurst, Elizabeth Crawford, Suzanne Keyte and Sarah Jackson

Global Local will host music from 12noon to 9.30pm featuring acts such as Holy Moly & The Crackers, Hackney Colliery Band, Break Out Bass and 47Soul. All-female spoken word will be provided by Penned in the Margins with award-winning writer and performer Hannah Silva and Rachel Long, the founder of Octavia - the poetry collective for women of colour.

Protest poster workshops with Hackney Arts, a banner exhibition with Digital Drama, children’s banner-making with Stitches in Time, a street food market curated by Sourced Market, pop up bars, aerial circus, yoga sessions, children’s theatre with Half Moon and children’s football workshops will also be available throughout the day.
