London History Day 2018

Bigger and better than ever!

31 May 2018 | Visit website

London History Day is an annual celebration of the capital’s vibrant culture and heritage, organised by Historic England. More than 70 of London’s museums, galleries and cultural spaces will open their doors to reveal special behind-the-scenes tours, rarely-seen exhibits and one-off events, celebrating the capital’s unique identity.
 
The theme for London History Day 2018 is Courage. In the 100th anniversary year of the first women gaining the right to vote, many special events will touch on the pioneering spirit, heroism, initiative and audacity layered in our history. Later this month the Mayor of London will unveil the statue in Parliament Square of Millicent Fawcett holding a sign reading 'Courage calls to courage everywhere'.

London History Day is teeming with events to suit all ages, interests and schedules, from free walking tours to cooking workshops, live music, discussions, children's events, special displays and exclusive events across the capital. London History Day is part of Historic England’s wider Keep it London campaign to get the public to notice, celebrate and speak up for the heritage in their city.

London History Day is on 31 May. Check out the ull programme of events at HistoricEngland.org.uk/LondonHistoryDay.
