Black History Month & Parliament Week

Why not bring your group to see our Living History performances No Bed of Roses or Slavery & Suffrage, to celebrate Black History Month in October.  We can offer one FREE session of Slavery & Suffrage to one secondary school group.  Please get in touch to book.  Strictly first come first served!  Parliament Week (19-25 November) is an exciting new national initiative that aims to build greater understanding of parliamentary democracy in the UK.  Bring your group to the museum to learn how democracy was fought for.
