Talk: Minnie Lansbury
 
  6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Minnie Lansbury was an East End Suffragette, socialist, school teacher, champion of the victims of war, and rebel councillor. She was held at Holloway Prison for six weeks following the Poplar Rates Rebellion in 1921 which won its fight to redistribute funding from rich to poorer boroughs. Janine Booth tells her story.

Part of Echoes of Holloway Prison Exhibition & Events Programme

Holloway Prison has been an important landmark in Islington for over 150 years. Until summer 2016 it was the largest women's prison in Britain. Many well-known prisoners have been held at the prison, but there are voices which remain unknown and unrecorded.

This project run by Islington Heritage Services, seeks to capture stories of this highly significant place meaning that, even now it has gone, the voices and echoes of Holloway Prison will remain.

Cost: Free of Charge
