Living History: The Hard Way Up – A Suffragette’s Story

Living History: The Hard Way Up – A Suffragette’s Story

This Living History session is based on the story of suffragette and local councillor Hannah Mitchell.

Living History: The Hard Way Up - A Suffragette’s Story @ Peoples History Museum

Our half day Living History workshops use performance, interactive drama activities and gallery exploration to bring learning to life.  Our sessions provide lots of opportunities for cross-curricular learning and link directly to the National Curriculum.  We use professional actors, writers and directors to deliver our Living History sessions.  These can be booked as performance only sessions for post 16 learners.

This Living History session is based on the story of suffragette and local councillor Hannah Mitchell.  Hannah spoke out for women and for the poor and became a peace campaigner after World War I.

You can also use our Key Stage 3 Deeds not Words: The Fight for Women’s Suffrage, 1900-1918 resources to support your visit. These include lesson resources and student worksheets.

Our Living History sessions take place in our purpose built Mini Theatre space in Main Gallery One. This gallery is open to all our visitors during performances. Whilst we endeavour to keep any external noise during a performance to a minimum, please be aware at times there may be external noise from other visitors in the galleries.

Why not book a joint visit with PHM and the National Justice Museum Education for full day learning experience looking at the suffragettes.
