Our small “museum”, the RSA Interpretation Centre takes part every year in Open City’s London Open House weekend, opening up access to our 234 year old clock and giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of the Royal Small Arms Factory from former workers volunteering their time for us, courtesy of the Royal Small Arms Factory Apprentices’ Association.

We had over 200 visitors on the day, in spite of the weather and no service on the Lea Valley Line through Enfield Lock. We hosted in the Community Hall an exhibition by the Royal Armouries which is now going to be in place at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield Town for the next two months.

We are as ever grateful to the Apprentices Association and to the Royal Armouries, with whom we are working to deliver a Heritage Lottery funded project, Roll of Honour.
