We visit this unique museum on re-opening day to get a look at the new banners for 2024.

One of Manchester's museums has reopened today (Thursday February 1) and has unveiled its brand new 2024 Banner Exhibition to the public.

Every year, People's History Museum in the city centre changes its collection of historical and political banners on display, cycling through its collection of hundreds of artefacts.

This year includes particularly significant banners commemorating the centenary of the first Labour Party government and 50 and 40-year anniversaries of significant mining strikes.

The banners are located in the main two galleries of the museum, allowing visitors to enjoy an immersive experience and take note of each of the new ones along the trail in its interactive Banner Bingo game.

The museum has also developed interactive accessibility QR codes for the new banners, featuring audio and visual aids, building on the legacy of a previous exhibition on disability activism - ‘Nothing About us Without us’.

The new banners will be on display from February 1 - December 30 2024.
