Event Details

In the early 20th century Newland Park, a Georgian style house set in the 550-acre estate in Chalfont St Giles (next to what is now the Museum site), was a refuge for suffragettes.  Now, following the hit film “Suffragette”, visitors can enjoy a unique opportunity to learn about these brave women and see them in action at Chiltern Open Air Museum as they fight, march, sing and campaign for the cause.
  • Learn about the Women’s Suffrage Movement in this family-friendly event
  • Watch physical and exciting demonstrations showing how a team of Edwardian ladies were able to protect the leaders of the Women’s Suffrage Movement from arrest, armed with only determination, cunning and training in the martial art of Jiu-Jitsu
  • Visit the WSPU (Women’s Social and Political Union) recruiting stall: will you join the cause?
  • Meet costumed re-enactors, listen to Suffragette songs and learn about this fascinating period of history.
Standard admission prices apply. Free entry for Annual Pass holders. All activities are weather dependent and subject to change.
