Marking Steps

Programme outline including details for

anniversary weekend 4th & 5th September

Marking the 40th anniversary of the Greenham Peace Women arriving at Greenham Common, Greenham Control Tower is running a programme of educational events and activities.

Greenham Control Tower’s programme will cover all perspectives of the Greenham Peace Protests. Featuring stories from military personnel and police who served during the period, Newbury residents, and the Greenham Peace Women themselves.

The programme is now underway with workshops leading up to the anniversary weekend on 4th / 5th September and the exhibition opening on Saturday 4th September at Greenham Control Tower. Come and enjoy all the free events over the anniversary weekend.

 

Families can get creative in Victoria Park on Saturday 21st August with a hands-on workshop making use of thermos flasks, scraps of fabric and other bits and pieces to create sculptures and pictures celebrating the women of the Greenham Common peace camp. And these ‘Peace Women’ figures can come along and meet the women that inspired them at the anniversary weekend!

Over the weekend of 4th and 5th September, to mark the arrival of the march, Greenham Control Tower will host a broad range of events to suit all ages and interests. Join talks and discussion groups alongside Greenham Women, witness Living History performances, help decorate our Peace Fence with Newbury Knitters and Newbury Creative Stitchers, follow a walk around interactive family activities inspired by Greenham Peace Camp gates. The weekend finishes with a cabaret spot featuring music, poetry and readings from Greenham Women artists.

The programme continues into the autumn with the exhibition running in the Control Tower Wed to Sun, ‘Drawing towards Peace’ workshop hosted at The Base 9th September and a script-in-hand performance of ‘Bloody Wimmin’ a play by Lucy Kirkwood at Greenham Control Tower on 30th September / 1st October.
