About Us

62 Nelson Street, Manchester, the birthplace of the Suffragette movement, is now the Pankhurst Centre. The Centre houses a small museum and heritage centre that remains as a legacy to the Pankhurst family and the Suffragette movement, and also serves as a women’s community centre.

This historically significant building was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her family who led the Suffragette campaign for Votes for Women, and is the place where the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union was held.The heritage centre has information about the Pankhursts and the Suffragette movement. This is open to the general public on Thursdays from 10-4.  Entry is free.

As a women’s community centre it provides and offers space for activities and events run by women, for women. It offers a unique place in which women can learn together, work on projects and socialise. It is a vibrant centre that hosts a number of women’s organisations and projects that support women, thus continuing the struggle that the Suffragettes began, fighting for women’s rights, all those years ago.
