It’s not long now until the opening of our exhibition of stories from Wadebridge and the surrounding area, which launches with the screening of a series of short films at the John Betjeman centre on Saturday 3rd December from 2-4pm. Everyone is welcome to this free event, where there will be an opportunity for further memory sharing and tea and cake. The exhibition will then be hosted by Wadebridge and District Museum, where you can drop in to see what we have been collecting. Please do spread the word!
The digital stories we will be showing cover themes such as working life at Pencarrow House, Summer camps down the river Camel, life on the railway and community celebrations. It’s been a privilege to listen to peoples memories, many of whom are in their 90’s, and astounding to realise the enormous changes they have witnessed over their lifetimes.
The exhibition will continue until the end of March 2017, with a changeover of stories at the start of February.
This event and exhibition is part of the wider ‘Landmark Travels- Our past in a suitcase’ project, delivered in partnership with Storylines and the Institute of Cornish Studies funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Heritage Trust.
