As part of this year’s Danger Zone exhibition, join us for a celebration of Parliament Week at Kirkstall Abbey.

This will be a chance to listen to speakers and explore collections from Leeds Libraries and Leeds Museums & Galleries relating to the work that Parliament has done over the last two hundred years to try and make Britain a safer place at home and work.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Child labour and working conditions
  • Fire safety and explosions
  • The Leeds Improvement Acts and public health
  • Poisonous substances and adulteration

Talks will be given by curators from Abbey House Museum along with colleagues from Leeds Libraries.

This session will also give you a chance to look at items from both the museum and library collections.

This event is free to attend.
