What’s on at the Museum?


Redbridge and the First World War

Redbridge Museum is commemorating the centenary of the First World War through a new website and book about the impacts of the First World War on Redbridge. Both are fully illustrated and feature extensive new research not previously published. Copies can be purchased from Redbridge Museum and most Redbridge libraries.

Redbridge and the Second World War

Redbridge Museum is commemorating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day through a new short film. Using the collections of Redbridge Museum & Heritage Centre, the film explores the Second World War in Ilford, Wanstead and Woodford in what is now the London Borough of Redbridge.

Redbridge Eats Out 

This small display celebrates Redbridge’s food – from tea parties to takeaways.

It features historic photographs, objects and personal stories from the local area, and was designed to set your stomach rumbling!


Ilford Football Club Heritage Project – can you help?


Redbridge Museum is working with Ilford F.C on an exciting new project about the history of the club. Founded in 1881, Ilford F.C has been one of the most successful amateur clubs in the country.

We would love to hear from anyone with Ilford F.C items or memories. The project will lead to a major exhibition, book and new website, supported by an award from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Please contact Michael Foley, Ilford F.C Chairman via email mj.foley@aol.co.uk or Redbridge museum redbridge.museum@visionrcl.org.uk020 8708 2317.
