7.00pm Gráinne Maguire’s One Hour All Night Election SpecialGrainne Maguire

 Sad there’s no big election this year?  Us too. Join Gráinne as she condenses all the fun of staying up late to watch democracy in process. Expect needlessly complicated graphics, politicians dancing awkwardly and humiliated grownups trying not to cry in public. There will be Swingometers...

Fresh from supporting Rob Delaney, you may have heard Gráinne on  R4’s “Now Show” and “An Idiot’s Guide”. Or not. We all have busy lives.

Organiser

People's History Museum

There have always been ideas worth fighting for. Join a march through time at the People’s History Museum following Britain’s struggle for democracy over two centuries. Meet the revolutionaries, reformers, workers, voters and citizens who fought our battle for the ballot. Gather amongst their magnificent banners and discover how time off was won (and spent).

Enjoy our main galleries, Changing Exhibition Gallery and Community Gallery, along with interactives and activities for visitors of all ages. Browse our shop for unique books and gifts and round off your day with a bite to eat in our cafe bar The Left Bank.
