Winston Churchill, Women's Suffrage and Wartime Music are combined in this tour with melodious charm! This tour combines all of these subjects into a sing-a-long walk through Westminster! March along, join in... and sing if you wish! There will be songs coordinated to accompany us on our way.

We cover ground in Westminster, taking in statues and stories from the fascinating life of Winston Churchill. The walk includes Winston as a boy and his famous parents, his early military career and his love of cigars, his World War I blunder, his love for Clementine, World War II and his Prime Minister years.
Women's Suffrage and the roles that women played as war changed our way of life are also covered. "Meet" Emmeline Pankhurst and her famous daughters, hear the song that describes how the war changed the roles of women in society, and join in marching for Votes for Women.
