Lockdown Memories Project

In view of these highly unusual and difficult times, 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 info@museumofrichmond.com:

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 info@museumofrichmond.com.
