Guildhall’s Memory Museum Returns To Beverley East Yorkshire

The Beverley Guildhall’s ‘Popup Memory Museum’ is back with ‘Three Streets’ – video presentations featuring old photos of Beverley aimed at stimulating ’s memories. This first presentation compares 1960s and 1970s shops with how Toll Gavel looked in 2022, by highlighting the differences between them.

The other two presentations, A walk along Ladygate, and The Globe Inn & Sow Hill take viewers on a journey along Ladygate and around the Sow Hill area with photos from the 1960s and 70s. This shows how the area around Ladygate has changed since the Globe Inn was demolished and Sow Hill Road was built.

, Guildhall attendant, said: “We are very grateful to Rob Simson who provided us with these fabulous old photos from his family’s business, Simsons, established in Beverley in the 1920s. They are a valuable record showing how the town has changed over the years.

“The videos will run on a loop throughout the day, so there is no need to book, just pop in and stay for as long as you want.”

It is intended that the Memory Museum will ‘popup’ at intervals in the Guildhall exhibition programme, with different video presentations each time.

‘Three Streets’ opens at the Beverley Guildhall on Wednesday, 1 November, 2023 and runs until 1 March, 2024. The Guildhall is in Register Square, off Cross Street, and is open from 10am to 1pm on Wednesdays and 10am to 4pm on Fridays. Admission to the building is free.
