The new exhibition opens on Wednesday, 27 November and runs through to 13 March 2020. Those involved say this type of exhibition is very popular.
Guildhall curator Fiona Jenkinson said:
“Our ‘street’ exhibitions have always been very popular because people can relate their memories to a particular area.
“People may remember that it was originally a two-way street and there was at least one motorist who caused chaos when it was changed to one-way in 1968.”
“It is actually a very varied street, so we have information on the banks and solicitors, the Congregational Chapel and St John’s Chapel, the bede houses and ‘maison de dieu’, and of course Watts Bros and Lairgate Hall, among many others. We hope that people will enjoy remembering earlier times on the street, and perhaps finding out something new.”
“Looking at Lairgate” opens at the Beverley Guildhall on Wednesday, 27 November and runs until 13 March, 2020.
The Guildhall is located at the far end of Register Square, and is open from 10am to 1pm every Wednesday and 10am to 4pm every Friday. The building will be closed between Christmas and New Year, reopening on Friday 3 January, 2020. Admission to the building is free
