Royal Jubilee Exhibition At The Dorset History Centre

Queen in Weymouth

10:22am 13th June 2012

The Dorset History Centre in Dorchester is staging a Royal exhibition to contine the Jubilee festivities.

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset, Mrs Anthony Pitt-Rivers will be opening the event today for a private showing.

It will focus on jubilee celebrations from King George III to this summer's Diamond Jubilee.

Visitors will be able to view rarely seen photos, documents and objects which show the history of the royal celebrations in Dorset.

The exhibition is free and opens to the public from 14 - 28 June and opening hours are 9am - 5pm Tuesday to Friday, and Saturday 9am - 4.30pm.  

People are also encouraged to share their memories on a special online guestbook to record memories of their Jubilee celebrations in Dorset. This digital archive will form part of the Jubilee exhibition and become part of the permanent collection at Dorset History Centre.
