Welcome to Deeds Above Words. A website dedicated to a heritage project that unearthed and shared the links to the Suffragette movement in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
Charnwood Arts, in partnership with Mike Shuker and the Loughborough Labour History Group, Loughborough Library Local Studies Volunteers and Chorus Theatre, developed the project that celebrated and commemorated this local dimension in the struggle for women’s votes. The project was supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and entailed a range of activities across 2018. Highlights included a research that was turned into a pamphlet and an e-book along with a community play and talks by nationally renowned academics.
The section titled ‘The Festival’ concentrates on the activities of the project whilst the section titled ‘The History’ will focus on the historical accounts of the stories of Suffragettes in Loughborough.
