About Us

To mark the 70th anniversary of the start of the Blitz, Westminster City Archives ran a series of high profile Lottery-funded events, including new online resources, live performances, media and school events across the Borough. West End at War was part of Westminster Memories, a community-wide initiative designed to capture local history and community experience for Londoners, young and old.

From June 2010 to February 2011 the Archives showcased new website, digital and film resources at several public venues. These included the West End Live 2010 festival in Leicester Square and a Legacy of the Blitz conference at the University of Westminster. Volunteers are continuing to add material to this evolving site.

If you would like more information about the project or have a story to share about the West End during the Second World War then please email us at: archives@westminster.gov.uk
