Celebrating a very special anniversary — which took place 45 years ago on this date, marking a blow against sex discrimination.
Just the stories, no performers, enjoy tales of the past without distraction. Including how Aberdeen’s suffragettes tried to disrupt Home Secretary Lloyd George at the Music Hall; the origins of opera diva, Mary Garden; how English artist, Joan Eardley adopted a cottage in Catterline as her home; the spectacular tale of famous suffragette, Emily Wilding Davison’s attack on a poor Baptist minister who bore an unfortunate resemblance to the Home Secretary; how an English lady called Mary Webb wrote the iconic local song “The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen” for a home-sick Aberdonian quine. These and many more!
