Bolsover exhibition

15th March we held an exhibition at Bolsover Assembly Rooms to share our findings and experiences from the project to date. We’ve had a really great time working in Bolsover with lots of support from local public taking part in the project.

We shared photos from our scanning day, and hosted Reminiscence Vintage Cafe who helped keep everyone supplied in tea and cake.

During the exhibition we asked visitors to write down any memories or knowledge they had of the photos and articles on show. These notes will be added to Picture The Past photo archive to add history to the photos they already have of Bolsover, and to photos that have been added to the archive through the project.

We had a 156 visitors to the exhibition throughout the day, and had many interesting conversations about Bolsover and great feedback about the project.

At 5pm the exhibition closed and we turned the room around for the grand finale performance of Bolsover Past Lives film and music. Photos to follow…
