Things to do during a blackout

During WW2 crime rose by a reported 57%. A rise in fraud, gang culture, looting and a fractured relationship with Europe impacted on peoples everyday life. Along with poverty, hunger, illness, fear and exceptional pressure – what was home really like?

Young people across Kingston will collaborate in an innovative project researching and documenting why crime rose. Their research will be curated into an exhibition and performance at the National Archives for VE Day 2020.
