The Museum of Bath is on the hunt for memories

The Museum of Bath at Work is appealing to residents of the town's Oldfield Park area to raid their attics for any photographs to share as part of a new exhibition planned for April 2011.

Opening next year, the project will delve into the lifestyles of those who have lived there previously or still live in the district today, asking them to get involved with their own mementos.

This will be the second community-themed exhibition to originate from the Museum following their recent take on the history of Coombe Down.

“While the history of Bath has been written many times, the history of the district has traditionally been overlooked,” says museum director Stuart Burroughs.

“We are hoping to work closely with residents, young and old, to create a first class exhibition to tell the full story.”

For further details or to contribute to the project contact the exhibition co-ordinator, Janine Scarisbrick, on 01225 318348, or Stuart Burroughs at the Museum on 01225 333454.
