On the 11th of July from 3pm until 10pm Women’s Banner Group are taking over Redhills for the day as part of a week long series of fringe events organised by Education4Action (E4A).

At our FREE event entitled ‘Redhills Revolution: A Celebration of Women’, we have music, performances, speeches and poems. There will also be a bar, tea tent and WBG merchandise on sale.

The WBG have been on the ‘Great Banner Hunt’ for several months now, and there will be a large selection of Women’s banners from politics, the miners’ strike and the community displayed around Redhills on the day.

We will also be unveiling our beautiful Community Banner which is the culmination of four months of hard work by 12 groups of women in the local community and our amazing quilter Mary Turner. This banner is being marched at Durham Big on Saturday 14 July 2018 and has the honour of being blessed in the cathedral.

Please feel welcome to come along and march shoulder to shoulder with women in strength and solidarity!!!
