Event description
FREE exhibition tour - REBELS, RADICALS, REFORM: The Fight for Better at the Museum of Wigan Life

About this Event

The Museum of Wigan Life is delighted to offer free guided tours of the latest exhibition REBELS, RADICALS, REFORM: The Fight for Better.

Come and join us to discover 600 years of protest across Wigan Borough.

From the Peasants Revolt in 1381 right through to Black Lives Matter and climate change, the fight for equality, fairness, and the freedom to protest has always been important. Whatever the cause, it is the approach taken to speak truth to power and allow the growth of equality and change. Sometimes political, always personal - civil war, rebellion, suffrage, and strikes are all part of our story.

By exploring the role our borough has played and is still playing in social change, the exhibition brings to life some of the many campaigns throughout the centuries.

Booking is essential as exhibition tour groups are limited to six people.
