A Family in Wartime, IWM London’s new major free family exhibition – will explore the lives of William and Alice Allpress and their ten children and what life in London was like during the Second World War.
From Make-do and Mend to hiding in an Anderson Shelter in the back garden during a bombing raid and waving goodbye to your loved ones as they went away to fight on the front line, A Family in Wartime will demonstrate the bravery and endurance of ordinary people living on the Home Front.
The exhibition will be brought to life through first hand audio accounts from members of the Allpress family, together with family photographs, an intricate model of their family home, everyday household items from the era and a breathtaking display of artworks from the IWM collection.
Times: Daily 10:00am- 6:00pm (Closed Boxing Day, Christmas Day, Christmas Eve)
Location: Lambeth Road, London, SE1 6HZ
