The music line-up will feature Hackney Colliery Band, Holy Moly and the Crackers, along with an all-female brass band, Break Out Brass and dance act 47Soul.

There'll also be an immersive Suffragette rally in partnership with the Museum of London along with a live panel discussion featuring Emmeline Pankhurst's great-grandaughter, Dr Helen Pankhurst.
