Come face to face with a colourful selection of historic and contemporary banners, the handiwork of those who fought for the rights we have today.
Revamping a quarter of PHM’s main galleries, the 2023 Banner Exhibition gives a unique insight into movements from the 1889 Great London Dock Strike to the 2019 climate strikes, with several banners going on display for the first time.
With their memorable messages and motifs, these banners are striking representations of groundbreaking moments of protest and the people united by them.
Family Friendly exhibition, suitable for all ages.
Families! Collect your Banner Bingo activity from the Info Desk on arrival.
