Women of Chester can ‘Reclaim the Night’ this November

Chester’s annual Reclaim the Night for women and the vulnerable in Chester will be from Chester’s Storyhouse Theatre from 7.30pm on Saturday 9th November. 

Reclaim the Night is an international movement against sexual violence. The RTN marches take place at night as a protest against victim-blame which tells women to stay off the streets at night if they don’t want to be at risk of sexual violence or harassment.  Alison Breadon, Centre Manager for the Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service (CSASS) is calling for everyone to come and make a placard and join in the protest march to the Cross. 

Alison said: “It is everyone’s right to be able to be out in Chester at night and feel safe and free from harassment.”

This year the event will include the Nina Gaskell School of Dance, who have choreographed pieces especially for the evening at the Storyhouse, they will be joined by students from the University of Chester, Cheshire College South and West.

Kathryn Kirk, CSASS Outreach Manager, will be in Storyhouse from 5pm, leading workshops for making placards and singing songs for the march from 6.30pm.  She is encouraging everyone to be part of this event, and bring percussion instruments and flashing or light-up toys to make their presence seen and heard. 

Come and be part of Reclaim the Night and support the women and vulnerable in Chester. More information can be found on the CSASS Facebook page or on the website here:
