Can I draw your attention to an upcoming event by CILIP ARLG NW ?
CILIP ARLG NW Visit to the Peoples History Museum.
Monday 25th June 2018, 3-5pm.
2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act and CILIP ARLG NW have arranged a visit to the Peoples History Museum [http://www.phm.org.uk/] to celebrate this.
The visit will encompass opportunities for a tour of the main galleries and the Represent! Voices 100 Years On Exhibition which starts in June 2018.
Represent! Voices 100 Years On reflects on those who campaigned for better representation; most famously the suffragists and the militant suffragettes. The recently acquired Manchester suffragette banner will be displayed for the first time alongside sashes, brooches, photographs and cartoons, helping to paint a picture of what representation meant in 1918.
For more information see here: http://www.phm.org.uk/whatson/represent-voices-100-years-on/
The visit also includes an introduction to the Peoples History Museum archives by one of the team.
The event is free but places are strictly limited, if you would like to book a place please contact Jacqueline Ponka by email: [log in to unmask]
Deadline for bookings is Monday 11th June.
