This seemed to fit very well with the idea of a community museum so we decided to try something similar where we ask to create their own exhibition full of their memories of Beverley.

“The whole day on will run as a reminiscence session, with tea and coffee supplied. We hope that will come along with a few photographs that can be scanned straight away and added to the walls, and tell us a few anecdotes about their life in Beverley. Hopefully the first additions will spark further memories so that more will come along on future Fridays and add to the display. The exhibition should then evolve over time so it will be worth coming back to see how it is changing.”
