I am delighted to announce that I will be holding an exhibition this September to mark the 100th anniversary of the election of Margaret Wintringham, the first ever British- born female MP who represented Louth!
As a staunch advocate of women's suffrage and known as the 'silent candidate' during her election campaign, this exciting exhibition will take you through the remarkable life and work of Mrs Wintringham. Visitors will also have the chance to meet and take photos with Parliament's life-size suffragette statue named Hope, who is made entirely out of LEGO!
The exhibition is running Monday to Saturday between 7-25 September 10am-4pm at St James’ Church in Louth. Admission is free and booking is not required. We will also be taking part in the Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days Festival so keep your eyes peeled!
