We’re looking for your photos and stories to bring the exhibition to life! Perhaps you or your family lived locally and can tell us about the area in days gone by? Perhaps you worked at the station or ran a business here? Or maybe you were one of the thousands of clubbers who flocked to King’s Cross every weekend in the 90s. Whatever your story, we’d love to hear from you.
We’d like to present at least 50 different stories – one of them could be yours!
