Totnes Women’s Voices at Totnes Museum

Event Date:

From 8th April

Until 25th June


The Totnes Women’s Voices exhibition at Totnes Museum celebrates 100 years since at least some women won the hard fought for right to vote in a general election.

This exhibition features the audio/ visual presentation “Totnes Women’s Voices 1918-2018”. In it you will hear local women and girls from age 3 to 92 give their views on politics and voting, how life has changed and what they feel still needs to change.

You will also learn about local women activists from Totnes and Devon who were involved in the suffrage movement and there will also be an opportunity to share your views.

Transition Walks

Join us for a fun and interactive introduction to the Transition movement. This tour will visit some of the environmental, social and economic projects associated and partnered with Transition Town Totnes, to give you an insight into how communities can work together to tackle some of our biggest challenges from climate change and food security, to energy shortages and creating strong local economies. Who for? For local people and visitors (for private tours and group visits, click here) When? Fridays from April to October between 3 pm and 6.30 pm (unless otherwise stated). Cost: There is a suggested voluntary donation and all surplus, after expenses, goes towards the work of Transition Town Totnes, a registered charity. We suggest £20 for visitors and £10 for locals, but please pay what you can or what you think it is worth - it's up to you. And we really mean that - even if it is nothing! The most important thing is that you come. Where: Market Square on Totnes High Street, between the tree and the ramp to the Civic Hall. We begin with introductions and then we will walk around town, stopping at projects and places of interest. Contact: To book a place contact us by email or phone 01803 867 358. Access: Please advise in advance of any mobility issues so we can make arrangements as necessary. Please note, the tour does involve plenty of time walking around town.
