Burgh House in Hampstead is hosting an exhibition The Ponds: Photos from the Hit Documentary, featuring film stills, behind-the-scene moments and archive images from the wildly successful film The Ponds. John Neal, whose great grandfather Walter May was the first attendant at the Men’s Pond in 1893, has generously contributed brilliant family photographs, some of which appeared in Taking the Waters: A Swim Around Hampstead Heath. Daisy Belle: Swimming Champion of the World will also feature in the display.

The exhibition runs from April 3rd to August 25th. More information here
