Oldham Lockdown Museum

Week 2 (1st – 7th June)


We asked you to send us a picture of something that represents the Covid-19 lockdown to you. These are some of the images we received. As people who care for museum objects, we understand that ‘it’s not just the object, it’s the story’. As the TV show ‘The Repair Shop’ has shown us, small things can have enormous power to transport us back and make us think of people and places that are gone, but not forgotten. What are the simple things that are going to remind us of our time in Lockdown?

Deadline for ‘Object’ submissions was 9am Monday 8th June. We are really happy to have submissions on this theme for us to keep in our collection after this, but we may not be able to add them to our digital exhibition.
