Reclaim the Night

Event details

Saturday 25th November 2017
Women take back London on Reclaim the Night!

Assemble at North Terrace, Trafalgar Square (in front of the National Gallery) at 6.00pm

This women-only march will end with a mixed rally at the Camden Centre in Euston, for speeches and a film followed by music with our DJ Mzzz Piggy. Route map: or see map at bottom of page.

Reclaim The Night is a women-only march. Girls of all ages and boys aged under 12 are welcome to attend.

Due to licencing requirements at the Camden Centre, under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Men are welcome at the rally at the Camden Centre and they can also support the event by joining the men’s vigil from 6.30pm at the Edith Cavell statue, opposite the National Portrait Gallery. The men’s vigil is led by the White Ribbon Campaign.

Photos from previous Reclaim The Nights, including our tenth anniversary event in 2014, can be found here.

All women are welcome at Reclaim the Night, including: women of all colours and cultures, of all religions or none, women of any age, disabled and non-disabled women, heterosexual women, lesbians, trans women, bisexual women, refugee and asylum-seeking women and any other women you can think of! We would love to see you all there. Bring along your mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, and daughters.

Your comfort and safety

We aim to undertake the march at a slow enough pace to ensure that everyone can keep up, and that gaps do not open up. Women with disabilities or mobility problems (and their friends) are welcome to walk immediately behind the lead banner to help set the pace.

The route is about 2 miles long (3.5km) and the march takes around 1.5 hours. If this is too far for you to walk, you are welcome to join anywhere along the route. Waterstones on Gower Street has been suggested as a possible later joining point with less than a mile to walk at this stage. It is open till 8 and has a café.

It is also possible to take the 29 bus (goes from Trafalgar Square to Warren Street via Goodge Street) and buses to Kings Cross can be found here in order to reach the Camden Centre.

There are toilets at Trafalgar Square, but following this there are no public toilets until we reach the Camden Centre, although we will pass cafés, etc during the march.

Remember to bring water, a snack, and several layers of clothes for warmth as well as a waterproof just in case. Check the weather report before you leave.

We have been advised that the police will be in attendance at Reclaim The Night 2017 and there will also be security in place. Reclaim The Night has always previously been a safe event, but it is necessary to remind you that all participants take part at their own risk, and that due to reductions in police funding we cannot guarantee that there will be a police presence on the night as this could change at short notice.

Please follow any instructions given by our stewards, security or police, and report any accidents or safety concerns to them. There are first aiders on the march.

But mostly enjoy the march!
