About

Rebels, protestors, activists, pioneers; however you want to name them, Parliament has had a complex and sometimes explosive history with those who sought to challenge the law.

To celebrate those who risked all to have their voices heard, Westminster Hall will be transformed for one night only into an exciting stage showcasing their stories from the past to the present day.

So come and be part of the story. Listen to BBC Radio 2 award-winning folk artists, Nancy Kerr, Greg Russell and Tim Yates, who come together in a unique collaboration to perform a repertoire of atmospheric songs beneath the famous hammer beam roof, which will be illuminated to show its full glory.

Hear tales of the rebels and non-conformists; the visionaries and the conspirators, whether they be suffragists, Guy Fawkes, the LGBT community or the lobbying gin distillery Sipsmith, whose delicious gin cocktails will be served throughout the night.

Take a tour, relax on our replica House of Commons green bench or browse our stalls for keepsakes of this exclusive and exceptionally special evening that sees the Houses of Parliament participate in Museums at Night for the very first time.

UPDATE: TICKETS TO THIS EVENT HAVE NOW SOLD OUT.
