Postcards from the Park's Past: Open Day

  • Event details

  • Saturday 12th May 2018

    11am - 3pm

    The Regent's Park

No email, no mobile phones... how did soldiers and their families keep in touch during the First World War?

They sent over 2 billion letters and 140 million parcels, that's how. And every single one went through The Regent's Park.

Come and find out more!

  • Pitch in and join the 2500 people who worked at the Home Depot to make sure soldiers' mail gets to them safely, securely and quickly, at our immersive, interactive sorting office.
  • Discover how the Post Office kept the war going - and how jammy buns kept them going - at our First World War outdoor exhibition.
  • Take part in artist-led activities to design and write a postcard to a soldier, a postwoman, your great-grandparents, or a parks gardener.

Drop in any time and enjoy activities suitable for all!

If you can't make it on 12 May, you can also visit us on 19 May.
