Stand With Hope

The Linen Hall is delighted to welcome Hope the Lego Suffragette, a life-size model on loan from the Houses of Parliament. Crafted from an impressive 32,327 Lego bricks and assembled by 3 people over 171 hours, this remarkable installation serves as a powerful reminder of the struggles and triumphs of the women’s suffrage movement. You can find Hope proudly displayed on Level 2 inside The Linen Hall.
