Our Commonwealth

Tell us your commonwealth stories as part of a new exhibition

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games are coming to Warwickshire in July 2022!

This summer, the Commonwealth Games will be coming to Warwickshire and the team at Heritage and Culture Warwickshire (HCW) would love to hear your personal stories about the Commonwealth! What does the Commonwealth mean to you?

We’d love local people to tell us about their own connections to the Commonwealth. Whether it’s a short story, a personal experience or a link to a local community, we’re keen to hear from you!

With the Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls taking place at Victoria Park Bowling Greens in Leamington Spa, and the historic St Nicholas Park in Warwick hosting the start and finish of the cycling Road Race event taking place in Warwick – the county will be alive next summer with world-class sport on our doorstep!

Your own connection to the Commonwealth might be sport or event-related, but it could easily be work-related, or perhaps a memorable trip or holiday you have taken, or maybe you have family or friends living in the Commonwealth who can provide you with an interesting story to tell?
