Have you got a story to tell?

We'd love to hear your stories about living or working in the borough.

Hillingdon Stories
We are interested in hearing your stories about living or working in the borough. 

Stories can relate to, but are not limited to:

  • your experiences during the pandemic
  • growing up, living or working in Hillingdon
  • places you enjoy visiting
  • your local family history
  • or, photos of 5 objects that mean something to you and tell the story of who you are. These items could be anything from toys to memorabilia or even treasured clothes.

Your stories will be used as inspiration for future exhibitions, writing, visual arts and performances at a variety of venues across the borough. 

You can send your entries in a range of formats such as photographs, artwork, drawings, in writing or via a short video. 

To submit your stories, email them to archives@hillingdon.gov.uk.

Please note: By submitting any creative work or inspiration to this campaign, you are giving permission for your work to be used in future exhibitions and to be shared with other residents or groups, such as performers or theatre groups, for use in their work or performances.

Help us document the pandemic

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on daily life. We have seen communities come together and families forced apart. Hillingdon is no different.

The museums and performing arts team want to capture evidence of this unique time from local residents and workers - to help future generations understand the impact coronavirus has had on our local area.
