Novelist, journalist, feminist, pacifist, political activist and radical thinker, Winifred Holtby was a woman before her time.


The woman to whom Vera Brittain paid tribute in her book Testament of Friendship was born at Rudston in East Yorkshire in 1898; her mother, Alice, was the first alderwoman on the East Riding County Council.  Kiplington, where her most famous novel, South Riding, is based, is a (fictional) town on the Yorkshire coast.

In the week that marks the 80th anniversary of her death, local theatre company Hull to Scarborough Line present an original play at Scarborough Art Gallery which interweaves her life with scenes from her books.

Take Back Your Freedom! can be seen at the Gallery at 3pm on Sunday 4 October. Tickets are £3.00, and places are limited, so booking is recommended. To book, or for further information, please call the Gallery on 01723 374753.
