'Be the change that you want to see
Be the change for you and me’


This revolutionary story celebrates the life of Sylvia Pankhurst – feminist, activist, pacifist, socialist, rebel – the lesser-known Pankhurst at the heart of the Suffragette movement, who changed the lives of working women and men across the world.


Following its 2018 run as a work-in-progress, Kate Prince’s Sylvia is back where it all began for its world premiere, uniting dance, hip hop, funk and soul to shine a light on a remarkable moment in history, with original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde.

    Everything about this production was amazing. Set, staging, lighting, costumes, music and cast. Moved to tears in places as the story had such a profound effect on me.

    Treated my daughters as my youngest is an actress and loves musicals. We were totally blown away with the vibes and amazed at the singing, dancing - we couldn't sit still in our seats - and the message 'equal rights for women'...black women included, came across loud and clear! The cast were brilliant - Beverley Knight and Sharon Rose's voices were amazing - Sweeney who played 'Silvio' had the ladies swooning...what a voice, on par with likes of Justin Timberlake! Spoke to an american lady, who was blown away with the performance...hope it makes its way to Broadway! So sorry the show has come to an end...more people need to see it!
