Take a trip to the People’s History Museum and see a 200-year-old banner.

The Tin Plate Workers Society banner is 200 years old on 19 July 2021. It was created by William Dixon for the celebration of the coronation of George IV (19 July 1821). The banner incorporates the Union Jack and was intended to inspire pride, hope and justice.

The banner features as part of the family-friendly ‘I Spy’ quiz at PHM. There are 16 treasures to find; some are items and some are really interesting details or parts of an item. Maybe you could bring your binoculars or a magnifying glass for some close-ups? Plenty of fun for little ones and their grown-ups.
