PHM's Learning Programme

Bookings open autumn term 2024

Our Learning Team is currently working on a project that will see the relaunch of PHM’s Learning Programme with two new workshops.

We have been working with partners and audiences to ensure that we continue to empower people with an understanding of how change can be achieved through individual, social and political activity.

Whilst this project is being developed schools and community groups can continue to visit PHM on a bookable self-guided group visit.
