Syrup are embarking on a new project about the borough of Southwark and its people to be included in the new Southwark Heritage Centre and Walworth Library. The project will run throughout 2021 and will culminate in an exhibition expected to open at the end of the year.

Through a programme of events and creative workshops, we want to make sure the people of Southwark have their experiences, voices and stories included in the local history of the borough.

We are looking to connect with you, the people who live, work and play in the borough, and find out what Southwark means to you. We want to hear about your memories: perhaps they might be of moving to Southwark, growing up in the borough, working here, or even how the events of 2020 have affected you.

This is a chance to contribute your stories to the history of your borough and to help build a resource for future generations. Please help us capture Southwark Today by answering a few questions.
