2019 is the 80th anniversary of the start of the Second World War and the Museum of Enfield has put together an exhibition to show some aspects of the Borough during this period. In addition we are running a number of special events related to the exhibition.

In partnership with the Enfield Society we would like to invite you to our World War Two Day Conference, at the the Dugdale Centre on Saturday 14th September, 9.30am - 4.15pm.

This event brings together local historians, actors, poets and staff to showcase the history and impact of WWII in Enfield. 

We look forward to seeing you on what promises to be a fascinating day.
