Royal Albert Hall

One hundred years ago, the UK Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act 1918 allowing some women to vote for the first time.

The Royal Albert Hall played a uniquely important role in the women’s struggle to gain this right to vote as the venue for 24 great women’s suffrage rallies between 1908 and 1918.
