One of the most intriguing objects on display in the Fashion Museum galleries is an Edwardian red silk parasol. This low-key fashion accessory links to a major moment in women’s history as it belonged to Bath suffragette Mary Blathwayt. In this Twilight Talk leading up to International Women's Day historian Professor June Hannam of the University of the West of England will tell the story of Mary and the Batheaston suffragettes.

Tickets £10 adult / £8 student available to buy on the Fashion Museum front desk (subject to availability).

Includes wine reception. This talk is fully accessible to wheelchair users.
