On Friday 31 May 2019 London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) will open its doors for London History Day, celebrating the capital's extraordinary history and heritage.
Discover the archives through displays of original documents and behind the scenes tours, learn more about London in our short talks sessions for older visitors and by visiting the Under Ground London exhibition, create soundscapes and add to the Layers of London website.
There will be creative activities for all the family including the Great Document Explorer Discovery Quiz, conservation crafts such as stitching a book using traditional bookbinding methods, calligraphy, writing and performing a calypso with Alexander D Great and a sing-a-long of Cockney songs.
You’ll also be able to talk to experts who will tell you more about our amazing archives and the work we do.
LMA’s London History Day takes place between 10.30am and 4.00pm and is free. You can just drop in, but please register your interest on Eventbrite.
