In Living Memory is a Lewisham-wide programme of work that is a part of Lewisham’s tenure as London Borough of Culture in 2022 and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF). 

In Living Memory seeks to create a diverse and inclusive history of post-war Lewisham. The programme is made up of a series of community-led projects, each investigating a different aspect of the borough’s post-war history.

As part of this process, In Living Memory is collecting memories from local people, centring the voices of those often missing from mainstream history to produce a shared and enduring story of post-war Lewisham.

We invite you to share your memories of Lewisham. This can be done in different ways:
