As part of the annual Open House weekend celebrations, join staff on a special tour exploring the role that Valence House played in the building of the Becontree Estate.

From its use as the estate's first town hall, to the focus of Dagenham's pioneering library service and the role it played in keeping Dagenham safe and its residents happy during the Second World War, explore how the house left its mark on the local area.

Please note there is limited availability for this event and tickets must be booked in advance.
