Ideas worth fighting for have often been debated under the cover of darkness, in secret and away from prying eyes. On the second Thursday of the month, the People's History Museum invite you to join fellow radicals for a series of special after hours events. They’ll be showcasing radical heroes, debating current events and hosting exciting and quirky happenings. All the galleries will be open all evening for you to explore.
Whilst there, check out Never Going Underground. Curated by members of the local LGBT+ community, this unique exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, exploring and celebrating those who campaigned and continue to campaign for equality for LGBT+ people.
The exhibition details the development of an LGBT+ movement, showing the internal and external struggles, the different party political approaches to equality, and the social and historical context of the last sixty years of activism. This is the complex and compelling story of a long and often bumpy journey. Suitable for adults and young people
The People’s History Museum is located on the corner of Left Bank and Bridge Street in Spinningfields.
