On Friday we shot the final scenes of our film. Nibah, Adna, Falis, Faisa and Najma from Waverley School came to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery to shoot scenes that focused on Bertha Ryland, Hilda Burkitt and Ellen Barnwell, three suffragettes who were involved in different incidents that took place in the city between 1909 and 1914. We also shot some scenes that were based in Winson Green prison, the location of the first forcible feeding of a suffragette, Hilda Burkitt.

We were also pleased that Norman Bartlam from TNT News could join us. Nibah and Adna were interviewed about their experience working on this project. The film should be available on the TNT website sometime in June.

And last Monday a few of us went onto Adrian Goldberg’s radio programme on BBC WM! It was a really exciting week for us. Now we’ll be working on editing the film and preparing for our launch events.
