Queens Of Industry at Leeds Industrial Museum

January 4 @ 10:00 am - December 31 @ 5:00 pm

Celebrate the untold stories of women in industry during the 20th Century in this exciting new exhibition at Leeds Industrial Museum.

Discover the working class ‘queens’ elected to represent some of Britain’s greatest industries, from coal to cotton.

From the 1920s-80s, Queens of Industry flew the flag for their industry, county or even country. These young workers’ lives were changed forever, with opportunities to star on screen, meet political figures like Joseph Stalin and simply become a female voice for their industry.

FREE with admission to Leeds Industrial Museum

Mondays: Open only on bank holidays, 10:00 – 17:00.

Tuesday – Saturday: 10:00 – 17:00. (Last admission 16:00)

Sunday: 13:00 – 17:00.
