Pankhurst Centre to reopen on Sunday with new exhibition

The Pankhurst Centre reopens to the public on Sunday, 29 August for the first time since March 2020 with a brand-new permanent exhibition, At Home with the Pankhurst Family.

The exhibition lets visitors in to the room where the suffragettes first met in 1903, and reveals more about the Pankhursts’ private lives, as well as the Votes for Women campaign.

The Grade II listed former home of Emmeline Pankhurst is the UK’s only museum dedicated to female suffrage — campaigners saved the building from demolition in the 1970s and it opened as the Pankhurst Centre in 1987.

Heritage manager Ruth Colton explained to MM what visitors can expect.
