Current exhibitions

Rebel, React, Reform: Making the UK Parliament

  • UCL Main Library, Wilkins Building
  • 2 March – 11 December 2020 | Mon-Fri 9.30am-5pm | Free entry
  • Open to all. Enquire at Library Membership Desk for entry.

Throughout its history the UK Parliament has been challenged and re-modelled. Calls for change have come not only from outside Parliament, but also from within as MPs have rebelled against their sovereign, reacted to injustices, and worked tirelessly, if not always fruitfully, for reform. Curated in partnership with the History of Parliament Trust.
