When was the last time you attended (not threw or dropped your kid off at) a 10th birthday party? If the answer is a while ago, dig out your best sequin top and paper cone hat; here’s your chance to rectify.
In 2020, the national museum of democracy celebrates its 10th birthday, and is holding a big birthday bash to celebrate. Head over to People’s History Museum (PHM) in Manchester on 13th February from 6pm for an extra special edition of its monthly Radical Lates programme, featuring a democratic disco, performances, creative interventions, activities and, of course, party food and birthday cake. The night also marks the opening of a year-long programme of events, exhibitions, learning sessions and creative collaborations exploring the museum’s headline theme of 2020: migration.
Whilst you’re there, be sure to sign up to PHM’s new Radical Book Club, which launches in March. And to peruse a new publication that maps out the museum’s achievements over the last decade and shares thoughts on the future of democracy.
