Year of Victory at Upton House & Gardens

Last year we launched our ‘Banking For Victory’ exhibition, showing visitors what happened during WWII when the family owned bank and the staff moved to Upton House to live and work for the duration of the war. This year, in the final year of the exhibition, we will be telling the story of the end of the war and celebrating victory! There will be new displays in the house and lots of brilliant events in the summer celebrating VE day.

We would love the local community to get involved again this year by helping us to knit for our exciting new ‘make do and mend’ project which will be announced in February after which we will give more details!
