LOUISE JORDAN: Having toured across the UK and Europe since 2010, Louise became focused on telling hidden women’s stories in 2015 with her one-person touring production ‘No Petticoats Here: extraordinary women of the First World War’. This was followed by ‘The Hard Way: the true story of working class suffragette Hannah Mitchell’ in 2018 and ‘Florence; the lesser known life and legacy of Florence Nightingale’ in 2020 before Covid led Louise into the world of street theatre with her ‘Pop Up Pedestal’.

On this tour, audiences can expect to learn about some of history’s often overlooked pioneering women alongside anecdotes from Louise’s varied life on the road as a solo performer. A former history teacher and youth worker, Louise has written songs for UK Parliament and the V&A Museum, appeared in UK Vogue, given talks for the National Trust, University of Oxford and Hampshire Police. The thread that underpins all of Louise’s work is her desire to challenge existing narratives around gender and power.

 

Doors open 7.30pm. Music starts 8pm. The venue is mixed seated and standing. Tables are limited and available on a first come first served basis so, if you’d like a seat, we recommend arriving early!
