It’s difficult to accept that one hundred years ago women had no say in who would rule their lives, who would write the laws, who would represent them at Parliament. WayfinderWoman are running a series of events to celebrate the emancipation of (some) women, those over 30 with property, and in May they are going to sing out that celebration.
They can announce that Bourne Chorus, the well-known choral group will be joining their WayfinderWoman presents evening of professional music and readings from suffrage writings on 9 May at Christchurch, Seaside, Eastbourne.
It will be a music evening with a difference, perhaps unique for Eastbourne. In the beautiful environs of the church guests will be able to enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the haunting melodies from Fiona Horsford, harpist. A highly skilled musician her repertoire ranges from classical to jazz to pop. Intertwined with the music, professional actor Kay Cadell will read extracts from writings which have been unearthed by one of Wayfinder’s Heritage project volunteers.
In the second half the sublime Bourne Chorus will perform their own archipelago interpretation of music that reflects the strength and determination of the women who fought for the vote. Their varied programme will bring the audience into today’s world, whilst Kay Cadell also performs extracts from writings through the ages.
Come and join us to celebrate #100 years over wine and music. Entry is £15 in advance and £20 on the door. Tickets can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
