Take a leaf out of Saddleworth Museum’s Book of Days

Why not get involved in the new community art and heritage  initiative launched by the Saddleworth Museum and Gallery in Uppermill?

Join with the museum and help to conserve, our traditions, celebrations past, present and future!

Saddleworth Museum invite all communities, individuals and groups to help create a large scrap book in the museum preserving our local events and celebrations and perhaps uncover some new ones along the way.

The museum holds thousands of pieces of ephemera and photographs but how many more exist in people’s cabinets and lofts that tell a fascinating story of important dates and events that have been celebrated in our local community.  It’s going to be wonderful bringing all these together in one book like a very exciting diary!” (Lindsey Milnes, Learning Officer)

The new project will be launched by a free to all drop in workshop between 1 and 3 pm, in the community gallery at the museum,  on Saturday 9th February. The museum’s learning officer (Lindsey Milnes) will be on hand to discuss the project in more detail. With the community’s help, the book will become a living archive of celebrations and commemorations that are important to you or a local group that you are involved in, no matter how big or small.

The Book of Days FREE Drop-In Workshop will take place on Saturday 9th Feb 1 – 3 pm.  Drop in to find out how you or your group can get involved, register your interest and gain help with resources and ideas.
