Why? "The Trouble with Women" is happening in Kendal!
Kendal Community Theatre present another ground-breaking drama festival 19-28 July 2018. It celebrates a century of women's suffrage and is called The Trouble with Women. Five plays, including new writing and some exciting town-centre street theatre (* see more below) which pays tribute to strong women. It's just 100 years since women gained the vote and the struggle in Cumbria was robust. The issue cruelly divided friends and families just as keenly as any political argument today.
Location: Castle Street Community Centre, Kendal Museum, and Kendal Town centre streets, Kendal
Contact Name: Kendal Community Theatre
Contact Address: Kendal Community Theatre,
Castle Street Centre, Castle Street, Kendal LA9 7AD

* One of the the organisers said,
"Any word-spreading would be good, but we would be delighted to welcome women (and men) on 21st July to be chained to the Birdcage and sing the March of the Women in an exciting piece of street theatre. There will be up to 3 rehearsals for this - details later."
"I hope everyone knows Jacky Fleming's work - we have ripped off one of her titles (with permission) and she is planning to come across for the Festival."

Cat Smith, MP for Lancaster & Fleetwood, officially launched Eli Aldridge’s campaign at the Castle Street Centre in Kendal on Wednesday 10th May.
Eli, who at 18 is one of the youngest candidates in this year’s election was selected to contest Westmorland & Lonsdale for Labour.
Cat who was appointed Shadow Minister for Voter Engagement and Youth Affairs by Jeremy Corbyn in 2016 said “I am thrilled to be launching Eli’s campaign. It is so important that young people are engaged in politics. The Labour Party now has more young members than the entire UKIP membership! Eli is a tremendous candidate, showing that the Labour Party is on the up.”
Speaking to a packed room of supporters, Eli stressed the importance of education “The Conservative Party has shown a disregard for education. Many local schools have seen massive cuts to their budget. Stramongate Primary School will receive £471 less per pupil which could result in the loss of five teachers. Labour recognises the importance of a properly funded education system. A Labour Government will deliver a National Education Service which will provide people with access to education throughout their lives.”
Eli was born at Westmorland General Hospital on Christmas Day and is currently studying towards his A-Levels at Queen Katherine School in Kendal.
The Lord Clark of Windermere who chaired the meeting commented “I have known Eli for many years. He is a passionate, principled man who has all the attributes to be a success in politics.”
