In The Meanwhile-Light Trail at Milsom Place

7 January 2022-31 January 2022

In The Meanwhile is an imaginative project organised by Bath Spa University and Little Lost Robot Studio working with B&NES Council. After the pandemic many shop fronts were left empty and so from this came the idea to temporarily fill these spaces with local art and creative talent from the community until the shops return.

BRLSI talk-Bath and the campaign for Woman’s Rights

Monday 14th of February 2022

7:30 pm – 9:00 pm GMT

When we think of the fight for women’s rights, Bath as a city doesn’t come into our mind’s eye as much as London for example, however, Bath did play a considerable part in this world-changing fight for freedom.

During this enlightening talk, we’ll hear how the suffrage and anti-suffrage campaigning took place in Bath during the years 1866-1914 in the form of the local newspaper, the Bath Chronicle, and the diaries left to us by suffragette Mary Blathwayt.
