Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan performs at All Saints Arts Centre, Lewes, on Saturday, February 24 (doors 7.15pm, show 7.45pm).

No Petticoats Here looks at women who challenged expectations, telling their stories in words and song.

Louise’s show includes the woman who dressed as a male soldier on the Western Front, the women football players banned by the FA and the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders.

Tickets are £8 from Lewes Tourist Information, Eventbrite (fee) or 01273 472621. Any remaining tickets will be £10 on the door.

The evening will conclude with an optional Q&A session with Louise. The audience is encouraged to dress in early 20th century costume (as a Suffragette or ‘Suffragent’) or wear an appropriate hat, but this is not obligatory.
