Queens of Industry Exhibition
Public · Hosted by Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Millsand Leeds Museums and Galleries

Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills, Canal Road, LS12 2QF Leeds

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.

Opening hours: Sat 10-5pm / Sun 1-5pm

Included with admission to the museum (adult £3.80).

The exhibition is open until 29 Sept 2019.
