Games Week: A Celebration of Games in History
7-15 July 2012

You are invited to a week-long celebration of games in History from 7-15 July 2012, with events planned at leading museums and archives across London.

Whether you're discovering children's forgotten street games, finding out about stadium architecture, or learning about Nazi board games, Games Week has something for every age and interest.

Run by the History and Heritage Adult Learning London network and convened by the Raphael Samuel History Centre, Games Week will be bringing together some of London's top museums, archives and galleries, as well as some of its smaller gems. Games Week Events include:

" Geffrye Museum, Game On! Over 55s reminiscence session around games played within the home, 10th July
" Sir John Soane's Museum, Stadia: Sporting Architecture through History, 10th July
" London Metropolitan Archives, Sporting London talk on 10th July and 11th July and This Sporting Life conference, Friday 13th July (plus other events later in the year)
" Wiener Library, Playing at war: an up-close look at games and childhood in times of conflict, 12th July
" Bishopsgate Institute, Parlour Games and Street Play, Friday 13th July
" Wellcome Collection, From Games of Goose to Snakes and Ladders, Saturday 14th July
" Freud Museum, conference on the psychology of sport and the nature of competition, 30th June

New for this year are our follow-on events: from September 2012 to July 2013 there will be monthly 'behind the scenes' tours and events at each of the venues giving people the chance to understand more about how some of London's top archives and museums work and to see things that aren't normally on display.

Booking for all events should be made at the host venue; booking details and the full programme are at http://www.raphael-samuel.org.uk/sites/default/files/downloadables/events/Games%20Week%20Schedule%202012%20pdf.pdf.
