Listen to a great line-up of speakers, find out how you can help win real democracy in the UK, and stick around for live music and drinks. The event will have a 1920s twist to celebrate the centenary of votes for (some) women and the 90 year anniversary of equal voting age for men and women. The Festival will be family-friendly and a fun day out!
