Message in a bottle – help us capture 2020

We’ll be talking about what happened in 2020 far into future. But can we trust our memories?

Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life is inviting you to help capture how 2020 feels right now.

Everyone is invited to take part in the museum’s quick, easy and fun ‘Message in a Bottle’ activity – families, school bubbles, clubs and individuals.

All you have to do is watch this video and create a message in response. What would you like to tell your future self about lockdown? You can draw a picture, write one word on a page or a long list of things you miss, take a photo... it’s up to you!

We would love to see your messages and we’ll keep them carefully for the future. Send a photo of your message to, or post it on social media using #TTMessageInABottle and tag us @timetidemuseum.

If you don’t want to post publicly, send them to us in a DM or private message. Or post to Time and Tide, Blackfriars Road, Great Yarmouth, NR30 3BX.

Some of your messages may be shared on museum social media platforms – let us know if you don’t want us to share yours.

We look forward to reading your messages.
