Southampton Celebration Proms
On Sunday 29th January, ReesLeisure in collaboration with Showcase Performance Company, presented the inaugural Southampton Celebration Proms. Southampton Musical Society was proud to join over 300 fantastic performers from across the city for an entertaining evening of uplifting and inspirational music.
Based on a true story, Made in Dagenham explores the movement that caused a significant law reform. Rita O'Grady (a fictional character) leads the 1968 Ford sewing machinists strike at the Ford Dagenham plant, where female workers walk out in protest against sexual discrimination, demanding equal pay. This strike causes a lot of public attention around the world and was seen as out of the ordinary to many because it was not in a woman's nature to do anything else other than the traditional family roles. The strike is successful and leads to the Equal Pay Act 1970.
Venue: The Berry Theatre, Hedge End
Dates:29th March - 1st April 2017
Tickets:£15.00 / £12.50 concessions
