Description

The banners on public display at the People’s History Museum (PHM) change annually, revamping a quarter of the museum’s main galleries.

View a new display of 25 banners, from the PHM’s world-renowned collection, which have been specially conserved by the team, to tell the story of how people have fought for representation.

At the heart of the display are the iconic banners that played a part in the campaigns that led to all men and some women obtaining the right to vote in Britain in 1918. This year’s selection also includes banners that featured as part of protests from 100 years later, including one carrying the words ‘Hands Off Our Midwives’ (2010).

The museum is open seven days a week from 10.00am to 5.00pm, Radical Lates are the second Thursday each month, open until 8pm. The museum is free to enter with a suggested donation of £5. Winner of Kids in Museums Family Friendly Museum Award 2017.
