A new Redbridge Museum

Thanks to a £100,000 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and funding from Arts Council England, Art Fund and others, a new permanent Redbridge Museum exhibition will open in early 2024. This is an exciting opportunity to revamp the Museum's much-loved permanent exhibition.
