Washing, Dancing, Singing: Women Living and Working in Prison

Washing, Dancing, Singing: Women Living and Working in Prison

18 November 2019 – 2 February 2020

EXHIBITIONS,FREE

A collection of historic photographs of women living and working in prisons.

18 November 2019 – 2 February 2020

These poignant photographs, on display for the first time, were taken in several UK prisons from 140 years ago to the 1980s. They arrived in our museum collection with little provenance and we wondered how these emotive pictures could be shared when we knew so little about them.

The absence of information offered us both a freedom and a challenge. Why were the photographs taken, who took them, what are the stories of the women pictured?

Free. Open daily from 9am-5pm

Join us at our exhibition celebratory event on Thursday 21 November.
