Online exhibitions

We have worked with local schools to create bespoke opportunities to help them celebrate important historic events.

In July 2020 we collaborated with St Charles Borromeo primary school  to create online exhibition to commemorate the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day.

Take a look at the fantastic work created by the pupils of St Charles Borromeo!

Bespoke Workshops

October 16th 2020 was an exciting day for teachers and pupils at Royal Kent School in Oxshott, as their school had just turned 200 years old!

We created a series of bespoke outreach sessions for pupils at the school to help them celebrate. Using images and information from our archives, we discovered what life was like at the school over one hundred years ago! We were even able to discover the names of teachers and students who used to attend the school.

Following the session, students submitted art work and poems inspired by their celebrations, which we used to create this exhibition.

If you would us to help you celebrate a significant event at your school, please get in touch!
