Rebel Girls: Their Fight for the Vote

a talk by Jill Liddington

Artsmill, Linden Mill, Linden Road, Hebden Bridge

7.00pm (to 8.00pm approx)


Jill Liddington talks about her new book in which she tracks the story of these forgotten suffragettes across the North of England, including Lavena Saltonstall of Hebden Bridge, and offers an utterly original history of suffrage. They took their message out to the remotest Yorkshire dales to win Edwardian hearts and minds. Bookstall.

In spring this year an International Audio-Visual Festival took place in the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford. Tonight the top awards from this event will be presented by Peter Coles, together with one or two local programmes of images, words and music.

The Demon Barbers

Trades Club, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge

9.00pm (to 12 midnight approx)

£9 (£7)

Over the last three years The Demon Barbers have gained major recognition for their original and imaginative approach to traditional music and song. With Damien Barber (vocals/guitar/concertina), Bryony Grif¥th (¥ddle/vocals) and Will Hampson (melodeon/harmonica) retaining a solid traditional English base, the band's unique sound is compounded by the driving rhythm section of Ben Griffith and Lee Sykes. 'With The Demon Barbers' driven punchy tunes & songs, drum'n'bass grooves, the odd touch of ska and an ever present feel that this lot know how to party, the result is one of the most exciting acts around' (fRoots '05).
