London History Day
On Friday 26th May 2017, children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite historic Londoner as part of the London History celebrations. All voluntary donations will go towards the school fund for educational visits.
Launched by Historic England, the first ever London History Day will be on Wednesday 31st May 2017– the date that Big Ben first started keeping time in 1859. It is chance for us to celebrate our city’s unique history and heritage: its historic buildings, sites, communities and heroes. The aim is for this to become an annual event for Londoners.
On Wednesday 31st May, forty of the city’s museums and galleries will stage special events and rare displays for one day only. Visit the Historic England website for more information. Click here for more information.
We are proud to celebrate London’s historic diversity.
