This summer we’re celebrating all kinds of souvenirs in our exhibition Keepsakes, Key rings & Kiss Me Quick.
It will be opening the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our request for Royal Souvenirs so now we’re asking you to think about some other kinds of souvenirs.
We’d really like to have some objects in our exhibition that are souvenirs of special events, times or people in your lives like a cinema ticket or receipt from a first date. Sara our curator has brought in her children’s hospital wrist tags from the days they were born and Eleanor is lending us a pair of Take That pants bought during their reunion tour in 2006 so anything that’s a personal souvenir to you could be in our exhibition!
We’d also like any souvenirs of wartime, 1970s foreign holidays and the British seaside.
Of course we will take the utmost care of everyone’s treasured possessions and the exhibition runs from the 2nd June to the 1st September.
Please get in touch if you think you can help us!
