A special archive exhibition as part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Women and the Hall season, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ‘Representation Of The People Act’ of 1918 and celebrating the many amazing women that have performed at, attended and worked at the Hall during it’s 147-year history.
This exhibition will contain a range of photographs from our in-house archives, tracing the stories of various women and their individual connections to the Hall.
As part of exhibition the Royal Albert Hall will also be displaying 10 banners from Digital Drama’s 100 Banners project.
Partnering with several museums, archives and arts organisations across London, Digital Drama has been working with community groups and artist Becci Kenning to create 100 Banners inspired by the suffrage banner collection held in the archives of the Women’s Library at the London School of Economics. 100 Banners is an artistic response to the campaigns run by Suffragettes and Suffragists in their ambition to achieve women’s equal voting rights.
The exhibition will be on display in the Royal Albert Hall’s Amphi Corridor, and can be viewed when attending a performance here between Thursday 1 March and Sunday 26 April (excluding 19 -27 March) or on the following free open days:
Saturday 3 March: 10am-12pm

Women and the Hall celebrates the women who were instrumental in the fight for women’s suffrage, and provides a platform for the women who are shaping our future, through a season of talks, film screenings and performances
