People's History Museum

The People’s History Museum in Manchester is the national museum of democracy. We aim to engage, inspire and inform diverse audiences by showing ‘there have always been ideas worth fighting for’. The People’s History Museum’s collection relates to the history of working people in Britain. Explore our collection highlights slideshow above. Click on the image or title to find out more about our top ten objects which all feature in the main galleries. This pamphlet is from the papers of Labour MP Ron Leighton, a chairman of the Common Market Safeguards Committee. The committee was an all-party group of MPs opposed to British membership of the Common Market. Since its creation in 1958, approaches towards the European Common Market, later European Economic Community and European Union has been a central feature of British foreign and economic policy. Until the late 1980s the Labour party focused on nationalisation and protectionism and the European Community was seen by some in the party as an exploitative common market supporting capitalist domination over working people. From the late 1980s under the leadership of Neil Kinnock, John Smith and later Tony Blair, the party gradually changed their attitude towards the community, especially with regards the protection it offered to working people and consumers. Visit the museum and join a march through time following the development of democracy in Britain over two centuries. The museum is open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm, including bank holidays.  On the second Thursday of the month, the museum is open from 10.00am to 8.00pm.  We are closed on 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January.
