New pop up exhibition ‘Time of Change’ by Bishops Waltham Area Oral History Group
One of the first exhibition visitors was Bill Dowling, better known in the 1960s as part of popular local group Karl and the Rapiers.
In 2023 the Group will continue oral history recordings around the wider area. The next theme is ‘Our Growing Town’, which looks at the impact of newcomers to our community, from 1970 on. If you think someone you know should be included as part of the history of the town, please let them know.
Would you like:
-an organised reminiscence session for older people?
-to learn about Bishop’s Waltham in the 50s and 60s?
-to hear about researching the Time of Change project?
The Group would like local people of all ages to have the chance to see and hear our findings.
From January 2023, Time of Change can be booked by any interested group for a free pop-up display and talk at a meeting or event in your community facility, residents’ lounge or regular meeting place.
