`Voice and Vote’ opens

 

The new exhibition in Westminster Hall at the Houses of Parliament, `Voice and Vote: Women’s Place in Parliament’ has opened to excellent press coverage.  Designers Metaphor have created an evocative structure, with recreated spaces, wonderful objects from the Parliamentary Archives and private collections, clearly told accounts of the women who fought for the vote (and a few who fought against it), and thought-provoking questions for the visitor.  It was a privilege to be part of the team that researched, wrote and moulded these stories.

The photos show the final `Chamber’ set, the exhibition in Westminster Hall, Lady Peers and MPs and the infamous `Cage’, the Victorian viewing gallery for Ladies.

Hand-held Heaven

Was published in `Best of British’ in June.  The ice cream weather may have gone, but it was lovely to see my piece, subtitled `The golden age of ice-cream’, fronting up this summer-themed issue.
