If the Palace rose again today, what would YOU show there?

This competition marked 85 years since The Crystal Palace burned down and was a partnership between Upper Norwood Library Hub, the Crystal Palace Museum and Parakeet Books kindly sponsored by estate agents Martin & Co.

9 talented storytellers had their stories exhibition at The Crystal Palace Museum sitting alongside relics of the fateful fire including the helmet of one of the firefighters! Congratulations to  Gemma, Louis, Eleanor, Annie, Macy, Nancy, Emilia, Louise, and our overall winning storyteller China. 

Feel free to download the resource pack that went with the competition which includes fascinating facts about the palace.

Why not write YOUR Crystal Palace story and if you'd like to share it with me I'd be delighted to read it!  Email me at
