Chamberlain Square
Birmingham, B3 3DH

Opening on Saturday 7 December is Birmingham Revolutions – Power to the People. This exhibition is a chance to discover the different voices and ideas that have contributed to the fight for a better Birmingham, from the Priestley Riots of 1791 all the way through to the LGBTQ+ campaigns of today.

Exploring the city’s vibrant and varied history of protest and activism and the role Birmingham has played in some of the most important campaigns and movements in British history, Birmingham Revolutions will look at campaigns such as voting reform, nuclear disarmament, trade unionism, anti-racism and human rights. The exhibition aims to show the different ways in which a person can protest and campaign, what we can learn from past protests, and show everything we as a city have achieved so far.
