Radical Relationships guided tour at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre 14 February 2020 Entrance is free

Join this special tour of People’s History Museum‘s main galleries and hear about love stories through history – a perfect lunch date for romantic radicals. The museum’s Left Bank cafe bar will be open until 5.00pm for those who would like to end their tour with a glass of wine or hot drink.

Within revolution, there has always been romance… Mary Wollstonecraft strongly disagreed with the treatment of women within the institution of marriage, even though she would go on to marry her lover William Godwin. Friedrich Engels discovered love when he was researching the lives of the working class in the slums of Manchester, meeting Irish immigrant Mary Burns who he had a relationship with for over 20 years.
