Reclaim the Night March 18th November

rtn2017

A free, safe, women*-only fun night out for a good cause. What’s not to like?

Reclaim the night, Nottingham’s biggest and loudest annual grassroots protest against all forms of violence against women and girls is happening on November the 18th.

This is a women-only protest, Reclaim the Night will stomp, sing, dance and shout its way from Forest Recreation Ground to Market square. The event will end with a Reclaim Rally at the Council House steps with women-only speakers celebrating and supporting women’s self-organised action against violence. After the rally, women are welcome at Nottingham Women’s Centre to get warm, have a bite to eat and socialise at the after party.

There are many ways for you to get involved

  • Banner making at the Women’s Centre – 25 Oct 1-4, 8 Nov 1-3, 14 Nov 5-7. Just drop in.
  • Meet at 6.30pm outside Forest Rec Pavilion. There will be escorts from the forest tram stop and Mansfield road bus stop. OR meet at 6pm at the Women’s Centre to walk up with a group.
