A year of celebration
Celebrating a centenary of suffrage at Bodnant Garden
In 2018 we marked the centenary of women's suffrage - and the proud part played by our women of Bodnant - with a year of projects and activities at the garden bringing together staff, volunteers, community groups and visitors. Here's how we celebrated...
To mark the centenary of Votes for Women our gardeners transformed the Round Garden with an annual flower design in red, white and green, the colours of the suffrage movement.
What would you protest about today? With the help of artist Alana Tyson we had a blast with our staff, volunteers, visitors and friends in the local community making modern banners.
We gave visitors chance to see the garden in a new light, discovering Bodnant's links to the suffrage movement with a garden trail taking in special displays at The Poem, Pin Mill and Old Mill.
Pigtown Theatre and a cast of Bodnant Garden staff, volunteers, visitors and fantastic community friends came together in a rousing launch to our 2018 celebration of suffrage. If you missed it, enjoy our film.
