Temporary Exhibitions

Runnymede's Melody Makers

Until 30 October 2021

The One and Only, Mr. Chesney Hawkes

Whether it be Keith Moon and his iconic milk float, Sir Elton John with his spectacular glasses, or Lonnie Donegan with his Skiffle washboard, the Borough of Runnymede has a rich history when it comes to some of the nation's music icons.

Discover more about the Borough's musical connections at our Summer exhibition, guest curated by Chertsey's very own Chesney Hawkes!

Then & Now

Until 19 March 2022

Then & Now takes a look at how Runnymede has changed using our photographic archive. Historic photographs of some of the borough's most recognisable views in the 19th and early 20th centuries have been teamed up with newly commissioned photographs of the same vista taken by local photographer Douglas Kurn.

Next temporary exhibition: The Regency Wardrobe, Sculptures by The House Of Embroidered Paper

6th November 2021 to 26th February 2022

We are teaming up with talented paper sculptor Stephanie Smart, whose House of Embroidered Paper has created wonderful pieces inspired by Regency and Victorian fashions.

The exhibition will see pieces from the Olive Matthews Collection of dress alongside sculpted paper garments, some of which have been inspired by our own collections.
