To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the recent opening of our brand new Diamond Jubilee exhibition, we are holding a fun-filled Jubilee Party in a bright red Gazebo in Spa Fields, Clerkenwell on Friday 1 June.
We are being joined by teams from the Foundling Museum and the Museum of the Order of St John, who will both have plenty of items that illustrate their Museums as well as fantastic items to give away.
Throughout the day the brilliant Guy Atkins of Postcardese will be giving quick talks and workshops on the Forgotten Art of Writing Postcards, and the startling hidden histories behind the positioning of stamps.
Clerkenwell Tales bookstore will be with us all day, with plenty of great books and products.
The Big Wheel Theatre Company will also be running games and activities for everyone.
Lorna Giezot will be creating free stamp portraits for visitors to take away with them.
We will have Jubilee-themed cakes to give away and also a tombola with fantastic prizes including The World’s Smallest Post Service, letter writing sets, stamps, books, playing cards and games.
This is the perfect way to start the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend, and it’s free – we hope to see you there!
