The Maidens’ City: A Herstory of the Walled City

An exciting and engaging dramatised tour on Derry~Londonderry’s historic
 walls which explores the largely hidden history of women in 
the city. Brought to you by Sole Purpose Productions and written by Anne Crilly, the tours will start at the Guildhall, where local Suffragettes met 
100 years ago. This theatrical journey around the walls focuses on 
key female characters and events. Eleanor Marx and 
Mrs Pankhurst meet local shirt factory workers and Suffragettes; 
Cecily Jackson is burned at the stake for infanticide; discover 
how local women founded Women’s Aid; learn about the lives 
of women during the Siege of Derry and the Civil Rights
 Movement. It’s history, but not as you know it.
