Discovering the Bishop of London’s Palace at Fulham

25 May 2019 to summer 2022

The first exhibition in our new museum celebrates our recent £3.8 million restoration project, revealing what was involved in this thee year programme to restore and reinterpret our Tudor courtyard and historic rooms and create new beds in the botanic garden.

Find out how the complex restoration project resulted in a richer understanding of the building of Fulham Palace, how the site was used and the people who lived and worked here over the centuries.

Learn about the work carried out by specialist conservators and craftspeople, and the traditional methods they employed to remain faithful to those used at Fulham Palace in the past.

Discover fascinating finds, from artefacts uncovered through archaeology digs to a 17th century painted wall hidden behind plasterboard.

Learn about the vital role our volunteers played in discovering more about Fulham Palace and the Bishops of London through carrying out an extensive archive research project and participating in archaeology digs.

Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham

1 February – 10 March

Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham presents the faces and words of the borough’s incredibly diverse population through photographs and interviews, helping to build a community where people feel safe, valued and connected.

This creative project is an initiative by local charity H&F Giving. It focuses on collecting photographs and interviews to form a living catalogue of individuals from Old Oak to Sands End and inspire belonging, sharing, and inclusion for all. The exhibition depicts strangers, who are also our neighbours. H&F Giving hopes that it dismantles prejudice and exclusion, while inspiring belonging, discussion and sharing.

In collaboration
Savraj Kaur BEM, Executive Director of H&F Giving, produced the project in collaboration with portrait photographer Nahwand Jaff. Nahwand is a London-based photographer specialising in documentary and portraiture work. He has worked with many corporations and NGOs both locally and internationally. He aims to inspire social change while authentically capturing his subjects’ unique characteristics.
