A festival of community theatre, talks and walks, hidden gems and historic sites about local women who shaped history.
“History is stories…all our stories”
Knutsford Promenades is a community association that stages and annual festival of heritage and culture: a diverse multi-site event when we shine a light on local places and local people and their legacy as part of Heritage Open Days.
This year, we’re celebrating the lives an works of local Extraordinary Women. Through our collaboration with Mid-Cheshire Community Rail Partnership’s Amazing Women By Rail project, we highlight our own Knutsford women such as Elizabeth Gaskell, Alison Uttley an Joan Leach and the intertwined legacies of other women along the Chester to Manchester line including Elizabeth Raffalsd, Mary Fildes, Helen Allingham and , of course, Emmeline Pankhurst.
We’re grateful to the many experts, institutions and special guests who have so generously shared their knowledge and time, and to our sponsors and supporters who have enabled us to put on this festival.
Well-known and hidden histories are waiting to be discovered and every event is free to explore. Enjoy!
