Saturday 28th September


Info: Suffrajitsu tells the story of a young girl and how she learns that being small doesn’t mean you can’t change the world. Inspired by the real lives of suffragettes, this is the story of a movement that divided the nation. Suffrajitsus used Jiu Jitsu to protect themselves from arrest and police brutality, and ultimately helped win the fight to give women the vote! Combining original music, puppetry and some graphic novel style ‘Ka-Pows!’, Suffrajitsu shows you that you too can change the world, no matter who you are.
