Mental Health Week, 9 to 16 October 2021

This Mental Health Week, step away from the modern world and enter our space devoted to reviving memories and inviting conversations.

This free, interactive pop-up display invites participants into the world of yesteryear, presenting a space where visitors are free to reflect and remember while see and touch the ordinary objects and images of the past - from typewriters, rotary phones and radiograms to old newspapers, games and photographs.

Share your memories and stories in conversation, record them in writing, or just enjoy them as you encounter everyday things from your past.
Free entry, no bookings required.
