Museum of 51 at the Royal Festival Hall

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the 1951 Festival of Britain, a nationwide event that brought hope and progress to millions of people following the hardships of WW2, we designed and curated The Museum of 51 in the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall.

The temporary exhibition contained a vibrant collection of memorabilia, artworks, models, films, photographs and personal memories from those who took part, as well as an authentic 1950s living room styled by Homes and Antiques magazine.
