The Learning Team produced self-led resources, including writing, drawing and drama activities for school groups and adult groups to use when they visited the exhibition. Please see our Election! exhibition resources page for more information. You can continue to download the resources to be used with your group, though please note you will need to make some amends to the resources as the exhibition is no longer on display.

  • Many of our sessions are suitable, or can be adapted for, learners with special needs.  For further information or to book a session, please use the Learning enquiry form to contact the Learning Team or call 0161 838 9190
