Pop-Up Whitehall at the 2016 Cheam Charter Fair

Members of the Heritage Team along with our team of volunteers are taking Whitehall on the road! We will be visiting various fairs and events throughout London Borough of Sutton. Visitors to Pop-Up Whitehall will get sneak-peak of what to expect when Whitehall re-opens with family crafts and games, handling objects, Tudor inspired gifts, and information about the project as well as local heritage and arts.

When the Pop-Up is not at an event it will be touring our local libraries with a schedule of craft and object handling activities.
