Come along early and get warmed up! From 11am onwards, our #March4Women partners Morning Gloryville will be getting us in the mood with one of their unique 'morning raves' – an energising music and dance party for everyone to take part in.
An hour of inspiration and entertainment, including:
- 12 noon – welcome from Helen Pankhurst
- 12.05 – live performance by Laura Mvula
- 12.10 – panel discussion hosted by Gemma Cairney and featuring Ethiopian refugee Marchu Girma, Syrian refugee Muzoon Almellehan and her father Rakan, and CARE chief executive Laurie Lee
- 12.30 – live performance by Billy Bragg and Beth Orton
- 12.40 – speeches by Bianca Jagger, Sadiq Khan and Annie Lennox

Raise your voice for a mass sing-a-long to the classic Aretha Franklin song ‘RESPECT’. Led by Olympic ceremony composer David Arnold, you can CARE-aoke along with a host of famous singers including Melanie C, VV Brown, Kate Nash, Preeya Kalidas and Natasha Bedingfield. This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to sing with the stars!
Join the #March4Women across the iconic Tower Bridge – the bridge is being closed to cars for the march, so it promises to be a fantastic experience. We’ll have some placards and banners available on the day, but please bring your own too. Let’s make the march a festival of colour and a positive demonstration of the power and potential of gender equality.
The march ends at the Tower of London concourse with thank-yous from modern-day suffragettes.
The Scoop is a big outdoor amphitheatre on the south bank of the Thames next to City Hall and close to Tower Bridge. There is concrete seating for around 800 people plus space for others to stand and view the stage.
The Scoop is at London SE1 2DB. It is a 5-minute walk from London Bridge station (Tooley Street exit) and a 10-minute walk over Tower Bridge from Tower Hill station and Tower Gateway.
The Scoop is a great location for #March4Women but if the weather isn’t kind, it can feel very cold. So please check the weather forecast and wrap up warm and bring waterproofs if they might be needed.
Public toilets are marked on the route map. There are several cafes and restaurants at MoreLondon (the location of the Scoop). If you have any questions or need assistance on the day, please speak to one of our Marshalls who will be wearing orange jackets with the CARE logo on the back.
Printed copies of the route map and timetable will also be available to pick up on the day.
