Saturday 4th November 7pm / Main House


Featuring music and songs by singer-songwriter Katie Doherty.

Join us for an evening of music, history and activism as we celebrate the life and legacy of Josephine Butler (1828-1906).

Josephine was an English feminist, social reformer, and advocate for the rights of women.

Her story is at the centre of a new musical written by singer – songwriter Katie Doherty, and we will share some of the music with you, featuring the Alnwick Playhouse Community Choir.

The event also includes a panel discussion with invited guests to explore the topics of Josephine’s life and what activism and gender equality look like today.

This event is brought to you by Northumberland based theatre company November Club. You can find out more via
