What would have happened if the Cato Street Conspirators had succeeded in their plot? What if the Chartist petition had been successful? What if the suffragettes had failed to get votes for women? What if Thatcher had lost the 1979 election? Find out the answers to these questions and more in our interactive exploration into alternative histories for Museums at Night.
Join our hypothetical tour guides as they weave tall tales and ask you to imagine infinite possibilities of what might have been. In the weeks up to the event we’ll be featuring questions on our blog and in the museum so you can swot up on your hypothetical history and add your own alternatives. On the night we’ll subvert our timeline with your suggestions.
Suitable for adults and young people
