It’s 100 years since the Representation of the People Act (1918) passed into law, bringing with it full voting rights for men, and partial voting rights for women.
As part of this landmark year, we delve into Manchester’s rich local history – from the Suffragettes to the Chartists – exploring familiar voices, and some that you may never have heard before. Expect comedy, plenty of politics and Manc pride, as CYC reflect on history and the possibilities for the future.
