Details

This funny, gently subversive performance/lecture uncovers the hidden history of the writers, scientists, sportswomen, politicians, protestors, musicians and other heroines who represent the grit, determination and spirit of the North’s women.

Where There’s Muck There’s Bras celebrates the real northern powerhouse - the sung and unsung women of the North of England. Women you might have heard of include Britain’s first astronaut Helen Sharman, the first female speaker of the House of Commons, Betty Boothroyd and music hall star, the inimitable Hylda Baker. Women you may not have heard of include Liverpool’s Hilda James who introduced the front crawl to the UK, Lilian Bader, one of the first black women in the RAF and Red Ellen Wilkinson, the MP who led the Jarrow March!

In this hilarious and thought provoking show, stand up poet and Radio 4 regular Kate Fox asks who gets remembered and why (and why not)!
