Sheena Wilkinson, one of the UK’s foremost writers for young people, will reveal the secrets behind her latest novel, Star by Star, a bold tale of Suffragettes and heroes, courage and survival.

It’s 1918 and Stella has lost her Suffragette mother to the terrible flu pandemic that is sweeping Europe. The Great War is finally coming to a close, and women are going to be able to vote for the first time. Stella wants to change the world – but she can’t do it all by herself. Just as stars come one by one to brighten the night sky, so history is made person by person, girl by girl, vote by vote.

Taking inspiration from Sheena’s determined heroine Stella, you can have a go at writing your own Suffragette stories and poems, enjoy some Suffragette cake and dip into your Suffragette goodie bag!

This event is aimed at girls and young women 10+. All children must be accompanied by an adult and all are welcome!
