Celebrating 100 years since women were first allowed the vote, this exhibition of photographs showcases some of the faces of the Suffrage movement.

The display complements the Face of Suffrage, a unique large-scale art installation created by artist Helen Marshall and co-produced by GRAIN which will be on view at Birmingham New Street Station Thu 15 Nov – Fri 14 Dec 2018. 

The Face of Suffrage consists of a floor-based, 200 metre square photo mosaic composed of more than 3,500 images of females from across the West Midlands. Located on the concourse of Birmingham New Street Station, it will combine historical images of women involved in the Suffrage movement from the early 1900s and photographs made today by people of women in their lives.

Images show Emma Sproson, Hilda Birkitt, Mary Gawthorpe and Maud Arncliffe-Sennett c. 1908. From the LSE Library.

On display in gallery spaces off the foyers. 

Take a look when you come to see a show or pop into the theatre anytime Mon-Sat 10am-6pm and grab a treat from our NEW Coffee Bar after exploring the galleries.
