Historic Movement comes to CODE

17 September 2018

On the 26th October CODE will host a historic gathering as the Suffrage Flag Relay poignantly stops at CODE on its tour around the UK. Pictured are Catherine Hallsworth of the Festival and Events Team and Ismail Dale of the Heritage School Programme in front of the Suffragette Gallery at the Entrance to the Equity Shoe Building where Alice Hawkins used to work and now home to CODE Student Accommodation.

For those who want to find out more about CODE’s historic roots we have a video by Peter Barratt, the great grandson of Alice Hawkins, filmed at the Equity Shoe Building gates explaining her connections with this part of Leicester
