The Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford is to host a special exhibition taking shoppers on a trip down memory lane.

A photographic display will be in the shopping centre’s ‘Main Square’ and will run during every weekend from Saturday August 4 till Sunday, August 26, and will celebrate 50 years of The Liberty and give shoppers a glimpse into the past.

The exhibition will show the town’s shopping scene during the past five decades, with a series of photographs and newspaper clippings that establish prominent moments in the development of shopping in the area.

Centre Manager at The Liberty Shopping Centre, Jonathan Poole commented: “We can’t wait to display an insight into Romford’s shopping history and to celebrate 50 year’s of shopping here at The Liberty.

“Whether our visitors remember Romford from back in the day, or are new to the area, the exhibition will provide an educational reflection for the whole family to enjoy.”
