  • Festive Fun
  • Christmas at PHM
  • Play Your Part
  • Snow Season at Spinningfields

Festive Fun Come in from the cold and enjoy some festive fun at PHM!  Sing along to your favourite carols with a another seasonal performance from Manchester Civil Service Choir, followed by A Cornucopia of Surprises – a gallery tour celebrating trade union iconography.  Join a multi-sensory gallery tour exploring people’s fight for rights, especially suitable for blind and partially sighted visitors, and take inspiration from The People’s Business exhibition and make a festive Co-op creation to take away at our Christmas Co-op craft table.

Christmas at PHM

Looking for a Christmas gift with a difference?  Browse a range of items in the museum shop relating to The People’s Business exhibition, including mugs, coasters, postcards, badges, mirrors and magnets – the perfect stocking fillers!  Or why not get the gift that keeps on giving; a subscription to the PHM Supporters’ scheme for invites to Private Views and more.  The museum and The Left Bank cafe bar will be closed 24, 25, 26 December 2013 and 1 January 2014.  Otherwise we are open as usual, so visit with friends and family and enjoy our seasonal events and activities.
