The Sash My Granny Wore

Sun 3rd March

The title is a twist on a well known cultural phrase on these shores, and this show is a powerful tribute by Antrim Community Choir to their foremothers – the women who stood up for the right to vote. Through poetry, prose and song, they tell the stories of these struggles, beginning with the events of 18th November 1910, referred to as ‘Black Friday’.
