Tameside History Festival

1st-29th of September

Your chance to explore and celebrate Tameside’s Heritage. The theme this year is in recognition of the centenary of the Universal Suffrage Act, when (some) women finally gained the right to vote. But alongside celebrating the unique achievements of the suffragettes, we want to tell the stories of the hundreds and thousands of other women who have changed our lives, in both large and small ways over time.
