The event is suitable for those aged eight and over, and will be staged in the Activities Space (next to Riesco Gallery) on Saturday March 14, from 11am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4pm.

How did the Blitz and the bombing raids of World War 2 affect where you lived?

Was your house bombed?

During this drop-in session our volunteers will be on hand to help you research the impact of the bombing raids near you. You can use the resources in the Research Room, including bomb maps, photographs of air raid damage, and the Borough Engineer Reports to find out about the building or street of your choice.

We also have a collection of memories of Croydon during the war, in addition to a variety of original documents, photographs and objects that can be handled and explored.
