The Battle for the Ballot plus Steve Suffet

at Walthamstow Folk

Sunday 1st October

"The Battle for the Ballot" tells the story of how everybody in the UK came to have a vote. Using original songs alongside content from the collection of the People's History Museum, this live performance crosses the centuries to show how the right to vote was won.

Beginning in the Industrial Revolution the story will take in events like the Peterloo Massacre and introduce the people - radicals, chartists, reformers and suffragists - who fought for the ideal of Universal Suffrage, which was finally achieved in 1928.

This educational, entertaining and thought-provoking show is focused around the song writing of Quiet Loner - the pen-name of songwriter Matt Hill - and the People's History Museum Songwriter in Residence for 2016.

In support is our great pal Steve Suffet on a visit from the USA. Steve is a Greenwich Village folk singer of the old school - which is just the way we like it!

Please note: due to the nature of this evening's special performance there will be limited time available for floor spots and we will be unable to feature as many as usual.

Advance tickets for all nights up to the end of October are available via links on our website where more information on our future guests can be found. Tickets for the remainde of the year should be on the website over the weekend
