Industrial Evolution

Dates and times

22 July - 10 December

< Back to events

To say that Enfield was once an industrial hub is an understatement – the borough has played host to a wide range of industries, each one at the forefront of production and technique. It contained the largest area of market gardening in the UK, saw mass production of small arms after the Napoleonic War, and was the epicenter of electrical engineering and invention that sparked the technological industrial revolution.

From market gardening and small arms to electrical engineering and invention, Enfield’s industrial heritage is staggering. Enfield Museum’s exhibition will explore just some of the industries to have flourished in the borough. This borough wide celebration will be based at the DAC, but also incorporates an outdoor touring exhibition and satellite displays in our hub libraries.

Open from 22 July until 10 December.

Based at DAC, outdoor touring exhibition and hub libraries. Keep an eye out for our activity programme throughout the year!
