New Co-operative Party display

Celebrate the International Year of Co-operatives and visit our new display, Each for all and all for each – a display about the Co-operative Party.  Running until Monday 5 November, this fascinating display takes the visitor on a journey, telling the hidden story of the Co-operative Party which today ranks as the fourth largest party in parliament.  Discover the museum’s co-operative material on free guided tours of the main galleries on 26 and 30 October, part of Co-operatives United.

Labour Party Conference

Just a ten minute walk from the museum, this year’s Labour Party Conference is taking place at Manchester Central from Sunday 30 September to Thursday 4 October.  We are pleased to have a stall at the conference, so if you are attending do come and say hello and find out more about what’s on at the museum.  We would be delighted to welcome conference delegates to visit the museum’s galleries and the Labour History Archive & Study Centre, which holds the archives of the Labour Party and much more.

Weekender events at PHM

Running from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14 October, the museum is delighted to be part of the Manchester Weekender yet again.  From a grand piano and jazz performance to a radical print shop and even a Magic Lantern show, this is a weekend of events not to be missed!  Celebrate all things temperance during our Waterdrinkers’ Weekend; make your own temperance crown, enjoy a guided tour of our Demon Drink? exhibition or take a walk through Manchester’s hidden temperance history on a guided City Centre Trail.

The Manchester Weekender 2012

This October, the Manchester Weekender returns, a snapshot of the city’s best art and culture.  From performance art to pop-up cinema, from music premieres to intimate gigs, from superstar authors to Britain’s best bloggers, from art exhibitions to secret theatre, the Manchester Weekender features dozens of events – in some of the city’s most iconic spaces, including the People’s History Museum of course!  Whatever you do, and whoever you do it with, make yours a good Weekender.
