Chartism in Newport exhibition

This November marks the 175th anniversary of the Newport Rising when 5000 Chartists marched on the Westgate Hotel and clashed with troops. Over twenty were left dead in this struggle for democracy and our permanent exhibition tells the story of those who took part and the consequences of the event on the fight for the vote.
