The current exhibition at the Gainsborough Heritage Centre runs until 31st May. ‘Voices of Our Past’ makes use of the extensive oral history archive to tell the story of some locals; listen to their stories of the past as you go along. This exhibition brings the past alive with samples of oral history recordings, which were collected by Gemma Clarke, covering all aspects of the town’s past from Scouting to the war.
Reminisce with Gainsborough folk such as Marion Hind, who shares her memories of growing up in the area, and Roy Bucknell, who grew up in Thonock Hall, along with many others. One contributor, Nurse Phillis Peart, has written a book which can be purchased in the gift shop along with content from many other local authors.
The price for non-members is £3.00 for adults, with accompanied children under 16 going free. Alternatively, why not support the Heritage Association by becoming a member?
