Suffragettes

In the early 20th century Newland Park, a Georgian style house set in the 550-acre estate in Chalfont St Giles (next to what is now the Museum site), was a refuge for suffragettes.  Now, following the hit film “Suffragette”, visitors can enjoy a unique opportunity to learn about these brave women and see them in action at Chiltern Open Air Museum as they fight, march, sing and campaign for the cause.

  • Learn about the Women’s Suffrage Movement in this family-friendly event

  • Meet costumed re-enactors, listen to Suffragette songs and learn about this fascinating period of history.
