Commemorate the 1913 Lockout in Henrietta St
Number 14 Henrietta Street dates back to 1748 when it was the epitomy of aristocratic living. By 1913, it was a rundown tenement house, into which some 100 people (17 families, according to the 1911 census) were crammed. The effect of the Lockout, which started on 26 August was immediate and harsh.
Visitors to the house will be treated to a performance that portrays the struggles these families endured during the Lockout.
The house will be open 6 days a week (closed Wednesdays) from Thursday 4 July until 31 August. Timed ticket bookings can be made online or at the property (cash only on the door).
