Exhibition: Life in Abingdon during the 2nd Elizabethan Era

2nd April - 10:00 am - 26th June - 4:00 pm

The 1950s is where our story of the 2nd Elizabethan era starts, and the coronation was certainly celebrated in style, with a programme stretching over almost 2 weeks in June 1953, including an ox roast and of course a Bun Throwing.

This exhibition spans the seven decades of the Queen’s reign looking at events in Abingdon and major world events in tandem.
