Celebrate London time with a Pepys diary and its digital descendant.


Dear Diary - a celebration of diaries and their digital descendants

Appointment diaries and apps help us manage time. But what do we do with it? Diaries show how work, health, love, family and friends occupy us in different ways. Bringing together manuscript and online diaries, from pre-modern almanacs to the latest trend of lifelogging, King's Cultural Institute's 'Dear Diary' exhibition celebrates diaries and the many ways in which diarists capture human experience.
