Mapping Wandsworth Stories Exhibition

Wandsworth-FRINGE-2015-w-date (3)Celebrating stories and memories hidden from history through the creation of a Wandsworth story map.

Monday 4th – Sunday 17th May 2015 at St Mary’s Church, Putney, SW15 1SN

The artwork is available to be viewed between 12-6pm but be aware that at times, the Cromwell Room may be in use.

Wandsworth Museum is working with over 50 of Wandsworth’s Residents to capture their stories and reminiscences. We want to celebrate individual memories and histories that, together, make our borough so exciting, thought-provoking and special. These contributions will be weaved together into a large-scale map of stories and will be on display, with other work from the project at St Mary’s Church, Putney Bridge.

A celebration event for this project will be at St Mary’s Church on Thursday 7th May, 4-7pm.
