Working With Our Community
The RAF Museum is committed to engaging with our community – sharing and involving our community with the story of the RAF and Historic Hendon.
We have a flexible approach to outreach and are happy to discuss bespoke activities, object handling opportunities and talks to suit different interests and needs.
For more information about Outreach Activities, please contact Rhiannon Watkinson, Community Engagement Manager.
Examples of What We Offer:
Handling Sessions allow people of all ages to see, touch, smell, hear, and even try on fantastic objects that tell the story of RAF Hendon.
Our vast handling collection brings history to life, and includes Second World War service dress, and Irving Jacket, Helmet and Mae West as worn by Second World War pilots, and even a replica German incendiary device.
Handling sessions can be delivered alongside a craft activity and are ideal for family sessions and community fetes.
Due to COVID-19 our community talks programme has, for the time being, gone virtual. We offer a virtual talk for care homes showcasing the amazing history of aviation in Hendon. This virtual talk can be delivered via Zoom or Teams, it lasts around 30 minutes with time for a Q&A afterwards and uses images and film clips from the Museum’s archive.
Make and Take Craft Activities
Work with us to create activities to suit
your group or event, craft activities work well delivered alongside the
opportunity to handle objects from our collection.
Previous craft activities have included:
Badgemaking – be inspired by the badges and
medals of The Royal Air Force to create high-quality badges to display your own
achievements. Paper Aeroplane Challenge – which flies faster
and further a Vulcan, a Typhoon or a Tornado? Create your own paper versions of
real RAF planes and compete against others to win the challenge.
