Celebrate the lives of Eva Gore-Booth & Esther Roper, LGF Sunday 8th March

**Pop down to our workshop at LGF Sunday 8th March, 1 – 1.45pm**

Learn about amazing lives of formidable couple Esther Roper & Eva Gore Booth, and a new project to commission a city centre memorial in their honour.

Esther Roper and Eva Gore-Booth

Esther Roper and Eva Gore-BoothLast year we yarnbombed the marble man statues in Manchester Town Hall to create a temporary celebration of some local inspiring women.

This year we want to highlight the lives of formidable couple Esther Roper & Eva Gore Booth in a more permanent manner in Stevenson Square. But instead of a traditional bronze statue, we’d love to see something more in fitting with the Northern Quarter’s street art edgy vibe.

Join Jenny White, Hilary TurleyBeth Knowles to learn more about Esther & Eva, their impact on Manchester and why they set up the Barmaid’s defence League.

Reserve a place via the LGF eventbrite page.

Sorry chaps, the event is part of  LGF’s Sugar & Spice weekend in honour of international women’s day so it’s ladies only … but we’ll be running other workshops soon and you can go check out our display on Esther & Eva at the People’s History Museum until 8 March.
