    Join our brand-new immersive drama tour and hear the undiscovered stories of the suffrage campaign, as part of our Women and the Hall season celebrating a centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918.

    The Royal Albert Hall, the venue for 24 great women’s suffrage rallies between 1908 and 1918, played a uniquely important role in the women’s struggle to gain the right to vote.


    What to Expect

    • Your friendly and informative tour guide will show you the stunning auditorium that played a crucial part in the women’s suffrage movement.
    • ‘Meet’ Helen Ogston, the young Suffragette who smuggled a dog whip into a meeting – find out why she did it and the repercussions of her actions.
    • Hear Lord Curzon explain why, for the sake of the Empire (and many other reasons), women should never have the vote!

    We are proud to play our part in this year’s Centenary celebrations telling this little known story about the Royal Albert Hall and the battle for Votes for Women. It’s one that everyone should know. Find out more about the history of British suffrage at the Royal Albert Hall
