London Transport at War

Time: 19:00 – 20:30
Location: Cubic Theatre, London Transport Museum
Tickets: Adults £12; Concessions and LTM Friends £10
Nearly 80 years after the start of the Blitz, we are marking the re-opening of our London Transport at War gallery with an evening event looking back at the crucial role London Transport played during the World Wars.
Keeping London moving during the worst days was an extraordinary achievement for London’s transport operators and staff, and their dedication to the war effort was realised in a number of ways.
Join our Head Curator, Matt Brosnan, author and broadcaster Julie Summers, and founder of Twentieth Century Posters David Bownes for an engaging discussion and insight into the challenges of everyday life in wartime London, the opportunities it created, and the legacy still felt today in our modern city.
