East Grinstead Museum are thrilled to announce their latest temporary exhibition which explores Royal memorabilia from Queen Victoria, to King Charles III.
The exhibition showcases an eclectic array of items from the museums archive including a delicate Victorian clip from 1897, made to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, to more everyday keepsakes such as Coronation mugs and commemorative coins.
The exhibition also includes a selection of items loaned by local museum volunteers, including a wonderful scrapbook handcrafted in 1953 at the time of Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation and a trinket tray from the Balmoral Estate.
The exhibition is free to enjoy and runs until January 2023.
East Grinstead Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm.
The image shows King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother) visiting East Grinstead after a V1 bomb fell on the town in July 1944.
