Power of Print day

Enjoy a day out including screen-printing and poster making inspired by the museum's collection.  The day also includes a visit to the Savage Ink exhibition, which looks at the history and development of political cartoons and caricatures.  Resources will be provided to help develop research skills.  Suitable for primary, secondary and post 16.

Banner tours @ People's History Musuem

Banner tours

Come for a guided tour of our collection following the annual banner changeover and see the new selection of banners on display – some for the very fist time.  Led by a member of museum staff, our tours can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.

28 February - 28 March 2018, WEA Course, Savage Ink: The Cartoon & The Caricature. Plum Pudding in Danger by James Gillray

Five week WEA Course: Savage Ink, starting 28 February

Starting with the 'Golden Age' of political prints in the 18th century, this course will move through history and examine more recent developments in caricature, from ITV’s satirical puppet show Spitting Image to the work of cartoonist Steve Bell.  The course includes a guided tour of the Savage Ink exhibition.

Call for submissions for Represent! exhibition

We have a vote – but do we have a voice?  Do you feel represented?  If so, how?  If not, why?  PHM wants to tell your story.  Donate an object or story to our forthcoming exhibition Represent! Voices 100 Years On marking the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act.

Outreach workshops @ People's History Museum

Outreach workshops

Can’t get out of school during the busy exam periods?  We can come to you!   We offer Living History performances that can complement revision sessions and bring history to life.  These half hour performances work well for assemblies and large groups.  Get in touch with our Learning Team for more information.
