Memorial for arts activist Sue who set up Tufnell Park Women’s Liberation Group

09 August, 2019

A MEMORIAL event to celebrate the life of film-maker and activist Sue Crockford is to be held later today (Friday).

In the 1960s, she helped form the Tufnell Park Women’s Liberation Group, and a number of groups aiming to use the arts for protest and campaigning.

Later she set up the Children’s Community Centre in Dartmouth Park Hill and was a director of a youth club in Camden.

She moved into TV in the 1980s, working as an independent producer on several films.

More recently, Ms Crockford was active in her Stroud Green community, whether campaigning on local issues or organising gardening clubs for children.

She died last month aged 76 and is survived by son Barny Crockford, daughter Sky Crockford and four grandchildren, Amelie, Ida, Flo and Jacob.

The memorial is at the Brickworks Community Centre, 42 Crouch Hill, at 6.45pm. All are welcome but organisers have asked those planning to attend to email them if possible at
