Modern British Childhood: 26, Ministry Of Stories

Charting 64 tumultuous years in history, Modern British Childhood explores issues surrounding education, health, family, entertainment, fashion and play. From a pair of 1950s children’s NHS prescription glasses to the 2005 Teddyfone (designed for under 5s) the exhibition gathers together objects – exceptional or everyday, public or private – that dramatise the huge changes that have occurred in children’s lives. Clothing, toys, books and childcare items will be shown alongside TV and film footage and photography.

As part of the exhibition, poetry and prose by writers’ group 26 and Hoxton-based Ministry of Stories will also be shown, inspired by some of the objects on display.
