Rooms of Our Own Public Exhibition


Join us in celebrating the Rooms of Our Own National Lottery Heritage Funded project at our public exhibition in the Manchester Histories Hub.

Open from the 11th October the exhibition will feature items from the newly catalogued and deposited Pankhurst Trust archive, artwork from young people and the premier of the project’s film ‘Is the Fight Over?’

Although now recognised internationally as a site of historic importance, as the former home of Emmeline Pankhurst and the place from where the suffragette movement was born, for many years the Pankhurst Centre’s significance was overlooked. It was thanks to women’s activism that the quest began in the 1970s to save the building, which faced the very real threat of demolition in 1978. This hard-fought campaign, and the vision that led to the creation of a museum and feminist hub, has never been fully explored until now.

It would be wonderful to welcome to you the exhibition, to celebrate the hard work of volunteers and young people from across Greater Manchester in uncovering, cataloguing, and responding creatively to the Pankhurst Trust’s archive.

Free entry, open Monday – Saturday until 3rd January 2023.
