Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Frye's Suffrage Diary

Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Frye's Suffrage Diary
Date
22/02/2018 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Kate Frye (1878-1959) kept a diary from the age of nine until a few months before her death. This voluminous diary is now held in Royal Holloway's Archives. Between 1906 and 1915 Kate was actively involved in the women's suffrage campaign, first as a volunteer and then, from 1911 as a paid organizer for the New Constitutional Society for Women's Suffrage. This illustrated talk will recount something of her life as a suffrage foot-soldier as well as drawing on her accounts of the many spectacular suffrage scenes she witnessed – such as the 'Black Friday' riot in Parliament Square (18 November 1910), Emily Wilding Davison's funeral procession through London (14 June 1913), and the riot as Mrs Pankhurst led a demonstration at the gates of Buckingham Palace on 21 May 1914.

Description
A concert of classical piano works with links to ancient and modern Greece. The eminent pianist Carlo Grante begins with Beethoven's thrilling Variations on "The Ruins of Athens", in Liszt's transcription. They were written as incidental music for a play of that name in which Minerva and Mercury meet Greeks dreaming of their liberation ca 1800. The rest of the concert, featuring some of the best-loved works in the classical repertoire, illustrates how the music of the ancient world lives on in the DNA of western music.
