Marble Arch lit up in suffragette colours!

Last month Marble Arch London BID showcased their support of #PROCESSIONS2018 by lighting up the Arch in the suffragette colours. Check out what special offers their local businesses are putting on in the Marble Arch area for the weekend of PROCESSIONS in London, here.

Marble Arch

 

Kay Buxton, CEO of Marble Arch London BID says: “Since its creation, Marble Arch has been an emblem of triumph and gathering – a gateway for change. This symbolism was widely recognised by the suffragettes with many of their marches and demonstrations commencing at Marble Arch, including the celebration of Emmeline Pankhurst’s release from prison on 16 April 1909. Marble Arch London BID is privileged and humbled to partner with Artichoke and 14-18 NOW in commemorating the suffragettes by lighting the Arch in the movement’s colours of green, white and violet, as well as beginning PROCESSIONS London near Marble Arch in the footsteps of the brave women and girls that achieved so much for human rights 100 years ago.”
