Celebrating 100 years since women got the vote - that is, women over 30 who were property owners... but the vote, nonetheless.
Including how Aberdeen’s suffragettes tried to disrupt Home Secretary Lloyd George at the Music Hall; the origins of opera diva, Mary Garden; how English artist, Joan Eardley adopted a cottage in Catterline as her home; how an English lady called Mary Webb wrote the iconic local song “The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen” for a home-sick Aberdonian quine. These and many more!
We include the mosaics of ceramic artist, Carrie Reichardt, who was one of the visitors for Nuart 2018, creating works on the theme of "Suffragette Spirit". They have included many more Aberdeen unsung heroines than were mentioned on last year's tour, so we've taken the opportunity to re-route and revise the tour to showcase them.
