‌Faces of Change: Votes for Women

The Workhouse in Southwell has launched a new and fascinating exhibition called Faces of Change: Votes for women.

This is an exciting collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery and charts the national campaign for women’s suffrage in a very contemporary and imaginative way.

It also tells the story of local women connected to the Workhouse like Laura Ridding and includes an incredible array of rarely seen photographs and paintings.

The exhibition honours the 100 years milestone since women were granted the right to vote and is open in Southwell until 22 July.
