Abbey House Museum

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

Leeds’s rich history of protest movements have fought everything from war to government cuts. Uncover campaigners’ stories through poignant objects: a mother’s diary charts fears for her protestor son, while a padlock symbolises a campaigner’s fight. 

The display features contributions from local groups like the Leeds Quakers and Leeds LGBT*Q community, as well as new films exploring the police perspective on protest and life before the NHS. 

Co-curated with students from University of Huddersfield's 'History In Practice' degree module.
