Workhouse

Segregated Lives

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Exploring the experience of the unfortunate inmates of the workhouse in 19th-century Britain.

The workhouse is brought to life by examining the design of the buildings and the inmate’s diet, their work and their health.

Real life stories counterbalance the often sentimentalised and sensationalist portrayal in the press and literature of the time.

Combining rare workhouse artefacts, documentary firsthand accounts, pictorial representations and publications, the world of the workhouse is brought vividly to life.
