Hastings a Hotbed of Emancipation – “Miss Matters wasn’t the only suffragette locally – it seems Hastings was something of a hotbed for the movement.” (Pamela Haines). 

Lord Curzon blamed women writers for Hastings being a hotbed of emancipation , and the exhibition features some of these and the events which surrounded them, as well as offering a brief history of the suffragette movement, more specifically in Hastings. The accompanying slide show features many cartoons and posters of the time, as well as Hastings related  photos. 

Thanks to Marilyn Saklatvala for her work on this exhibition.

Opening depends on there being enough volunteers. In cases of sickness we may have to close.
