Thackray Museum of Medicine’s latest exhibition has landed, and it comes in the form of a vibrant exploration of all things menstruation. Entitled A Brief Jaunt Up North and originally created by London’s Vagina Museum, the exhibition is open from January 8th until April 10th, covering the history of periods as well as the myths and stigmas surrounding them.

With the help of Leeds-based charity, Freedom4Girls; local artists, Leigh Bowser and Alice Needham; and four other community groups, Thackray Museum has added to the original exhibition to create a vibrant display of education and inspiration.
