RI Archive display…

In the gallery for the duration of the exhibition there is a display in the Threadneedle space of the RI Archives. A collection of fascinating documents and photographs which chart the history of the Institute from it’s inception in 1831.

IN RECENT YEARS THE RI HAS GATHERED TOGETHER THE RI ARCHIVE FROM VARIOUS LOCATIONS WHERE IT HAS BEEN STORED FOR MANY YEARS. WE ARE DELIGHTED TO SAY THAT OUR ARCHIVES ARE NOW SAFELY HOUSED AT THE V&A IN LONDON.

THE ARCHIVES ARE IN NEED OF RESTORATION, DUE TO THEIR AGE AND PREVIOUS DAMAGE DURING THE WAR. RESTORATION, AT A COST OF OVER £11,000, IS STARTING IN APRIL 2019.

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO HELP FUND THIS PROJECT WITH A DONATION, HOWEVER SMALL, WE WOULD BE EXTREMELY GRATEFUL.
