New Dawn? The 1997 general election – opening day

The 1997 general election was a unique point in Britain’s modern democratic history.  It saw a rebranded ‘New’ Labour Party end 18 years of Conservative government and lay the foundations for an unprecedented 13 years in office.

How did this happen?  Why did it happen?  What did it all mean?  This exhibition will explore this vital but controversial moment in Britain’s history, helping visitors reflect on the issues it raises and explore an election that feels much further away than just two decades in the past.
