Women, Water and Wheels
29th November at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Enjoy inspiring stories of the pioneers of women’s sport in the Arlington Baths Club, a beautiful Victorian swimming pool with a unique Turkish Bath, where women have been swimming since 1872.
Jenny Landreth, author of Swell: A Waterbiography and The Guardian swimming blog, will take us through the story of the determined women who demanded equal rights in the water, threw off their restrictive costumes, and became Olympic champions.
Women, Water and Wheels, Wednesday 29th November, 6pm to 8pm, Arlington Baths Club
GWL will showcase objects from our collections related to sporting women; from 19th century women who found freedom through cycling, to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and today’s fast-growing female-dominated sport of roller derby. Join us for a tour of the Baths at 6pm.
Tickets for this event are available through Eventbrite on this website. Tickets are free and are available from 11th September.
