What is the March route?

📍 Trafalgar Square ➡️📍 Westminster

Alt text: London march of the mummies route from Trafalgar square to Westminster

Will there be toilet access during the march?

The toilets available on the March route are the public toilets managed by the Council. Unfortunately we were not allowed to place extra toilets on the route. You can find toilets along the route using this website, or the Flush app (Android & Apple) .


Will I have access to water?

There won’t be any water provided during the march however, we do recommend you bring a water bottle and if you’re able to, download the app ‘Refill’. This will provide you with  locations along the route where you can access water.


How far is the march route?

The route is 0.5 miles.


What if I need to sit down?

For those taking part in the march who are disabled or heavily pregnant, there will be a small seating area available at Parliament Square. There is limited seating and it will come on a first come, first served basis. If you require seating on the day of the march, please contact Emily ([email protected]) to book a space. 


If you do not require seating for the reasons stated above but would like to sit, please do bring a camping chair of some sort that you will be able to fold away and carry.

Will there be an interpreter?

Yes, there will be a BSL interpreter.


How long will we be at Trafalgar Square before we march?

At 10.30am, we will gather at Trafalgar Square before we march. At 11am we will leave Trafalgar Square and head along the march route. At 11.50am everyone will arrive on Parliament Square and the rally will commence with speeches. We expect the rally to end at 1pm.


Will I be arrested for taking part in a protest?

  1. The policing bill has not been brought into force yet so we are still able to protest freely. March of the Mummies has been agreed with the Met Police and the local council so there is no reason why anyone would be arrested.


Can I bring children? Can men come?

This is a family friendly march. Everyone is welcome.


Will the march still take place if it’s raining?

No matter the weather, we will march. Bring a brolly and sun cream – just in case.


What’s the best way to share this through my personal social media?

Please make sure you’re following Pregnant Then Screwed on social media and tag us in any pictures or videos on the day. You can also use the #MarchOfTheMummies


How can I join in if I can’t attend in person?

We’re asking those who cannot attend in person to post on social media on the day of the protest using the hashtag #MarchOfTheMummies   


Where can I breastfeed?

There will be chairs available at Parliament Square to provide you with a safe space to breastfeed your child.


Can I make a banner?

We would love it if you could create your own banner/placard. Feel free to create your own but if you are looking for ideas, there are lots on our website – just remember this is a family friendly protest. Take a look https://pregnantthenscrewed.com/protest-banner-ideas/


Can I put up posters for my March?

Of course! Download and print your poster here!

Anything else I should know?

Please follow the Glasgow March page on facebook page for updates, keep an eye on your children if you’re bringing them along (write down your name and number and stick in in their pocket just in case) and if you need anything on the day, or see anything that needs attention, please alert one of our stewards.
