Rarely seen portraits of influential Devon women, including Nancy Astor, Eleanor Acland and Gertrude Acland, are on show at Killerton.

The portraits are visiting as part of a touring exhibition, ‘Faces of Change: Votes for Women’, a partnership between the National Trust and the National Portrait Gallery.

Their images will be on display alongside rarely displayed portraits of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, as part of an exhibition to mark the centenary of the People’s Representation Act which gave some women the right to vote.

'I like this place and willingly could waste my time in it'

Sun & Moon Theatre's latest open-air production is an uplifting, wondrous adaptation of Shakespeare's 'As You Like It'. Within the confines of the corporate, tech-obsessed world of the Court, the present is grinding, life is passing by and the future feels bleak. But when Rosalind is abruptly dismissed by her uncle, rather than despair, she and her cousin, Celia seize the opportunity for a fresh start, assuming new identities and embracing the liberty and joy of the Forest of Arden.
