Extraordinary Women on Blue Plaques

When: March 6 2020

Where: Leeds, United Kingdom


Learn about the extraordinary women honoured with Leeds Civic Trust blue plaques at our Wharf Street exhibition.

Be inspired by women such as Ivy Benson, who with her all-girl band toured the UK, Europe and America, becoming the BBC's resident dance band during WW2; Adelaide Neilson, much-feted Shakesperian actor; Leonara Cohen, prominent Suffragette, arrested for throwing a brick through the Tower of London's jewel house and Beryl Burton, world record-holder road cyclist, year after year!
