Jubilee 2022 - Can you Help?


To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, we are creating a special online exhibition, launching over the Jubilee weekend, full of your memories about how the people of Littlehampton have celebrated these events over the past 70 years.⠀

Do you remember the Queen's Coronation festivities in Littlehampton? Do you have photographs of one of her previous Jubilee celebrations in the town? If so we need your help!⠀

If you think you can help and would like to be involved then please contact us by the end of April. Thank you!

Littlehampton in Lockdown: Archive Project

2020 and 2021 has been a year for the history books and Littlehampton Museum needs your help to record the Town’s response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Museum plans to build an archive of documents, photographs and artwork that show how Littlehampton responded to life during the COVID-19 lockdown. Residents have the opportunity to submit an item into the archive which will then form part of the permanent collection within the Museum.

Our Collections

Littlehampton Museum's mission is to make the local communities' collections as accessible as possible. As the collections contain almost 30,000 objects, it is impossible to display them all within the museum. In addition to traditional access through displays, exhibitions and talks, we are embracing digital platforms.
