New and exciting hub of events and education
As of October 2018 the Museum café is closed, and we are working, in conjunction with Newham College, to transform the space into a new and exciting hub of events and education. Launching Winter 2018, The Workroom will host an innovative selection of workshops, events, pop-ups, displays and more. The Workroom will also be available to hire for events, meetings, product launches. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire. Watch this space!

Bermondsey Street Fashion Heritage
A new map and trail celebrating the history of London’s fashion industry. Since Roman times, Bermondsey Street was home to the leather trade, as well as associated activities such as woolstapling, hat manufacture and glue production. Local streets that trace this history include Tanner, Morocco and Leathermarket Streets. But the map also highlights how the area provides a base for contemporary fashion and jewellery designers including Andrew Logan, Pussy Willow, Susie Stone and Zandra Rhodes. more
This project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund – All Our Stories.
