Lockdown Memories Project
We are looking for residents of the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames to contribute to our COVID-19 Lockdown Memory collection project, which will document the experiences and images of the lockdown implemented in the UK from March 2020. Through this project we aim to record information about how the lockdown has affected residents, so that these memories, experiences and images are preserved for future generations.
If you are interested in taking part in this project, please complete and return the following documents to firstname.lastname@example.org:
PLEASE NOTE consent forms are mandatory for us to be able to accept your submission to the project. If you have any questions about the form, please contact us at email@example.com.
Queen’s Road: 500 Years of History
1 February 2020 - 30 January 2021
Explore 500 years of history on a single road in Richmond. From farmland owned by Tudor courtiers to the site of modern social housing, Queen’s Road offers a glimpse into the ways society was changing in Richmond.
As the Museum was closed for 5 months in 2020, we have extended the run of this exhibition to January 2021. We will also continue to offer the online version of the exhibition for those who are unable to visit us in person.
