Going beyond the headlines, Grown Up In Britain chronicles the everyday experiences and cultural impact of young people through photographs, objects and stories. Reflecting the diverse movements that have been forged by youth, the exhibition explores what unites us across generations and asks What Makes Britain?

Curated by and drawn from the extensive photographic collections of the Museum of Youth Culture, the exhibition is centered around public submissions representing people’s personal experiences of being young from across the UK, collected as part of the Museum’s ongoing Grown up in Britain campaign. We’ve all been young once, from first loves to first jobs, Saturday hangouts to family holidays – what do you remember?

1 July 2022 – 12 January 2023, Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
