In 1910 the Women Chainmakers of Cradley Heath fought a successful 10-week dispute to establish the right to a minimum wage for their labour. Each year the Women Chainmakers Festival recognises and celebrates the role of women within the trade union movement and aims to reclaim the often forgotten contribution of women to Britain’s industrial heritage. The festival includes a banner procession, history tent, activities for children music – headliner Wara at 18:00 - and speakers.

Free entry all day, find out more on the Chainmakers festival from TUC Midlands -  or via the TUC West Midlands site.
