To celebrate Black History Month a museum in Watford has two exhibitions currently on display.

Watford Museum shares Black History throughout the year but at the moment the museum is hosting the Covid and Me exhibition, and another exhibition has just opened called Trailblazers - a project by the Academy players of Watford Football Club looking at the trailblazer footballers at Watford FC.

The Trailblazers exhibition is being launched in Black History month and will be on display until the end of November.

The Covid and Me exhibition was the result of a Black History Month (BHM) project last year by Brick by Brick in partnership with Watford Museum.

When the museum reopened in May, the first foyer exhibition was a collection of artworks by local residents who entered into the competition organised by Brick by Brick to celebrate Black History Month during lockdown titled Covid and Me which is part of its permanent collection.

The Museum and Council attended the Black History month launch event at the Watford African Caribbean Association.

The museum is also doing social media posts throughout the month on Watford’s Black History on their Facebook and Insta accounts.

To celebrate Black History Month, winning entries of the Covid and Me art competition will be on display at Watford Museum as part of its permanent collections about Covid in the town.

Watford Museum is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10am - 5pm.
