This stage adaptation of suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst's award-winning picture book has been produced by Kenny Wax Family Entertainment in collaboration with MAST Mayflower Studios.

Kenny Wax was behind international hit Six, which sees the wives of Henry VIII turned into a pop group.

The show will be told through the eyes of inquisitive heroine Jade as she breaks away from her class to take a peek behind the scenes at the not yet open Gallery of Greatness in her local museum.

The show stars original Six queens Christina Modestou and Renée Lamb and the show is suitable for people aged 6+.

Tickets start at £16.50 at norwichtheatre.org
