    A Month of Sundays

    A Month of Sundays by Bob Larbey

    Directed by Steve Taylor

    Laughing in the face of oblivion

    From the same pen as The Good Life and A Fine Romance comes this bittersweet comic gem. We follow the exploits of two care home friends, Cooper and Aylott - from the painful ritual of Sunday family visits and empty condescension, to valiantly flirting with the female staff – and discover that life can only be endured through friendship and laughter.

    Poverty Exhibition

    Richmond’s history is not just about kings and queens living in royal palaces. What was it like to be poor and destitute?  What help was there and on what terms? Come and find out what life was like for Richmond’s poorest residents at the Museum of Richmond’s Poverty exhibition.

    Behind the handsome Georgian façade, the Richmond Workhouse, and many others, divided families and expected inmates to complete often hard and monotonous tasks.

    Older residents may have been helped by the numerous almshouses of Richmond.  However, a set of strict rules, on display in the exhibition, shows how regimented life in the almshouses were.

    The exhibition displays the 1886 Richmond Union Workhouse Plan for the first time at the Museum. 

    Alongside the almshouses and workhouses, the exhibition looks at the individuals and charities who worked to alleviate the suffering of the poor. Richmond’s continued philanthropic spirit is highlighted through the charities which continue to offer support today.

    This timely and relevant exhibition exploring poverty and homelessness will engage visitors with a different side of Richmond’s history. It also brings these issues up to date in relation to the charities that call Richmond home today.

    The exhibition has been supported by The Richmond Parish Lands Charity, the Richmond Charities, Barnes Workhouse Fund and a number of generous individual donations.
