Edinburgh: Peter Barratt is taking his spoken word show about suffragette Alice Hawkins, who was his greatgrandmother, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He will be giving a passionate account of Alice’s hard fought campaign for the right to vote over a century ago. The shoe machinist, lifelong socialist and mother of six formed her local suffragette branch in 1907 after being freed from Holloway. A statue was recently unveiled of Alice in her home town of Leicester together with memorabilia exhibited at UK Parliament, including her sash, hunger strike medal and other family artefacts. Sister Suffragette Ruth Pownall (pictured) will add live theatre to the show.
