Local Collection Cabinets

Our Local Collection cabinets are in our Sadler Gallery and feature artefacts, collections and exhibitions that we think are really interesting. They all relate to local history, have been owned by a local resident or friend of The Spring, or are linked to an area of our work.

If you have a collection or artefacts that you think our visitors may be interested in please contact Kate Saunders, Participation and Heritage Manager, on kates@thespring.co.uk
