9th April – 19th June 2013

The Farnham Lives exhibition is all about the lives of people in Farnham, past and present.

The Museum would like to invite you to bring us your treasures: old, new, rare, everyday. Bring any thing with an interesting story (so long as it’s smaller than your head!).

We will display them next to rarely seen gems from the Museum’s archive, like a Tudor key from the Castle, King Charles I’s beautiful nightcap, and a long-loved teddy that’s over 100 years old!  Don’t worry if your thing doesn’t have a historic pedigree though; if it’s special to you and your life here then we want to see it.

Bring your things to the Museum from the 2nd – 13th April, 10:00 until 17:00.  Please make sure you’ve read the Terms and Conditions of lending us an item before you make the trip.

NB If you have a whole collection of wonderful things, please bear in mind that we will probably not be able to display it all.  It is best to choose one or two star objects.


As a thank you for lending us your precious object, we would like to invite you to the Private View on Saturday, 6th April at 7pm.  Please RSVP by 17:00 on Friday 5th April.

The exhibition is about your lives and your words, so we would also like you to write the caption for your object.  Keep it short, keep it interesting, and tell the unique story of your object and why it is special to you. If you click the link below, you can print off a form to write these at your leisure and bring it in on the day.


If your object is a bit big, you can’t make the drop-in days or just can’t bear to part with it, upload a picture to our Flickr pool.

Exhibition opens to the general public on Tuesday 9th April
