No Petticoats Here

Friday 8th September - 7.30 pm
Remembering First World War women through song.

Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan tells the stories of women who challenged expectations. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called 'surplus million' single women.

Inspirational women, working in a time of conflict, leaving a legacy.
