Join us for Reclaim the Night 2023.
The 2023 march takes place on Saturday 25th November. Wrap up warm and bring your banners, chants and songs. We will gather at 18.30pm in the Car Park of the Barry Road Co-Op NN1 5JS. The Co-Op will be providing free hot drinks. The march leaves the Co-Op car park at 18.45pm we walk down Wellingborough Road towards Abington Square and then across to Abington Street along the pedestrianised route to All Saints Church, George Row, NN1 1DF.
Together we will take to the the streets to raise our collective voices against sexual violence and harassment. Our march and vigil marks the beginning of 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, which will include events in our Shout-Up! venues across Northamptonshire.
Over 150 people joined us last year, with drumming, chanting and a powerful and moving rendition of the 1970s protest song ‘Reclaim the Night’ performed by local singer Jessica Afia.
