Hidden by Red Saunders self-led resource packs

Why not bring your group to our stunning changing exhibition Hidden by Red Saunders on show until 29 September. An Impressions Gallery touring exhibition, Hidden recreates great moments in the long struggle for rights and representation in Britain. Saunders has created re-imagined photographic tableaux which include scenes such as the signing of the People’s Charter and the Peasants’ Revolt.  We have created self-led learning resources to accompany the exhibition for KS1 to post 16 and adult groups.
