Do you own an object that won’t let you forget? Do you need to make room in your heart (and flat) for a new romance?

The Museum of Broken Relationships is an award winning exhibition of seemingly ordinary yet incredibly poignant objects. Donated by individuals from all over the world, each object tells the story of a past relationship. Loves that have foundered sit alongside passionate affairs and romances that have somehow turned into farce.

Objects from the permanent collection will be displayed alongside new donations made by the community living and working in Covent Garden and looking to exhibit their own legacy of lost love. There will be a special treasure hunt to find hidden objects around Seven Dials, Covent Garden.

“Original for sure. From the cute to the bizarre, the museum encourages you to open your mind and your heart.” Mark Lowen, BBC.

“I had the incredible good fortune to visit the Museum of Broken Relationships in November whilst producing one of the Tristan Bates Theatre’s international shows in Zagreb. Despite the museum’s name, the exhibition is full of hope, life, resilience and inspiration.” Laura Kriefman, Creative Producer, Tristan Bates Theatre
