Britain Celebrates Live: 100 Years of Women's Votes

Kirsty Young presents a unique celebration of the centenary of women winning the right to vote, as thousands of women process through the streets of the nation's capitals.

Kirsty Young presents a unique celebration of the centenary of women winning the right to vote featuring live coverage of PROCESSIONS, commissioned as part of 14-18 NOW and created by Artichoke. This vibrant and immersive art experience takes place across Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. The event sees tens of thousands of women and girls process through the streets of the four UK capitals in the spirit of the original campaigners for women's suffrage. Carrying artworks they have created especially for the occasion, they form a living banner in columns of green, white and violet, the colours of the Suffragettes, as they mark this moment in history. As well as celebrating such a significant centenary, Kirsty Young looks across the 100 years to mark the achievements of women past and present.
