Living Through the Lockdown

Be part of history! The Hull History Centre in partnership with Heritage Learning are continuing their campaign to collect family's experiences of lockdown over the Summer Holiday period.

Submit content such as photographs, writing and artwork which will go down in history by having your experiences officially archived, for future generations to learn what like was like for us during this strange time.

Find out how you can get involved by visiting the project here.
