We are very excited to announce that once again the RSA Interpretation Centre will be taking part in London Open House this Saturday (22nd September).
The Centre will be open between 10am and 5pm on the Saturday, with access available to the top of our clock tower to view our John Thwaite bird cage clock, dating from 1783 close up. Former Factory workers will be on hand courtesy of Royal Small Arms Factory Apprentices Association to tell their stories of working life at the Factory. We will also have our interactive Enfield at War display operating, detailing life in Enfield during both World Wars.
We will also be hosting as part of the Roll of Honour project an exhibition in the Community Hall from the Royal Armouries. This shall tell the stories of some of the workers at the Factory in the First World War and will function as a point of contact if you would like to contribute to the project over the coming months.
Finally, we’ve been advised that there will be no trains on the Lea Valley line all weekend. Thus our nearest station will be Turkey Street on the London Overground, it’s a half an hour walk, but you can pick up the 121 bus from Enfield Highway and alight at Canalside Walk to visit us.
