People’s History Museum (PHM) is rolling out the Manchester suffragette banner this summer to celebrate its birthday. 115 years after it was first unfurled in Manchester alongside Emmeline Pankhurst, founder of the suffragette movement, her great-granddaughter, Helen Pankhurst, will be taking part in a special evening of celebration at PHM on Thursday 6 July.

Combining conversation, creativity and tours ‘Manchester: First in the Fight’ will explore one of the country’s most significant suffragette objects and, of the hundreds of suffragette banners created, one of only a few to survive. It will be a joyful occasion, with welcome drinks followed by gallery tours and suffragette craft activities raising funds for the museum.
