Kenwood in Havant

The kitchen appliance manufacturer Kenwood moved its entire operation from Woking to Havant in 1962 and has been a major employer in the town ever since. Our exhibition tells the story of Kenwood and the iconic products that helped spark a domestic revolution in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s. As part of this project we commissioned Millstream Productions to produce a documentary film to record the stories people had come forward with. The film (which you can see below) includes interviews with former and current employees, telling stories about their working and social lives at Kenwood and tracks the way the company has developed since it first arrived in New Lane more than half a century ago.
