Cornwall, June 1913: fifteen women gather. They want to end child poverty, they want to end white slave traffic, they want to end sweated labour. But they can’t do this unless they have the right to vote.

Showing great courage in the face of opposition, these women begin to walk. Carrying a banner that reads ‘Land’s End to London’, they recruit more women along the way until fifteen women becomes tens of thousands.

Oxygen is a new play produced by Dreadnought South West Association, who work with arts and heritage to champion women’s voices and stories. This first major project is touring many of the stopping places along the South West route of the original Pilgrimage celebrating the centenary of The Great 1913 Suffrage Pilgrimage and asks, “What is important to women today?”

Recommended for everyone aged 10+
