The Pankhurst Centre

The Pankhurst Centre The former home of Emmeline Pankhurst and the birthplace of the suffragette movement. Now a museum and Grade II listed building. Free and open to everyone.

This modest Georgian town house was the Manchester home of the world famous leaders of the Suffragette Movement, whose militant protests were instrumental in the introduction of voting rights for women during the Edwardian era. Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, and her daughter Christabel together formed the Women's Social and Political Union in 1903, after Emmeline's daughter Sylvia had been invited by a m

ember of the Independent Labour Party to paint a hall in Salford in memory of her father, an active social and political reformer and lawyer, but was unable, by virtue of her gender to attend the opening meeting. The museum displays the work and struggle of women suffragettes, as well as reflecting everyday domestic life in the Pankhurst parlour. Also there are Meeting Rooms, available for hire. The Pankhurst Centre is open Thursdays 10-4pm

To celebrate the sensational, sell-out charity première and forthcoming general release of the film Suffragette, we will be open all weekend - 10th and 11th October. See where it all began... Entry is free. We are in the grounds of the Manchester Royal Infirmary, round the corner from where Oxford Road meets Grafton Street. If you get to the MRI main entrance, with your back to the hospital, look across the road and you will see some houses with railings around them. This is where to go. Open from 10-4pm Thursdays, plus special weekends. Next Open Weekend: 10th & 11th October 2015. Celebrating the release of Sarah Gavron's much anticipated film: Suffragette.
