The Big Draw: Suffrage Moves! @ Egham Museum

As part of The Big Draw Festival 2017, we are holding a series of hour long animation workshops where children can literally draw inspiration from Egham Museum’s project ‘Suffrage in Egham’ and see their ideas come to life.  What local voices can we hear from the past as men and women marched and called for the women’s vote?

All drawings, sounds and ideas will go towards a short animated film inspired by Egham’s local suffrage movement and the people that made it happen.

Slots available include
