(Re)Telling the New Town Story - An Evening with Harlow Civic Society | Harlow Museum and Walled Gardens | jeudi, 25. juillet 2019

Memories of Harlow's 40th and 70th Anniversary Commemorations:
Jake Shepherd will present findings from his research with Harlow residents about their memories of Harlow’s anniversary celebrations.
Archive/contemporary materials from this dissertation's research into Harlow's 40th (1987) and 70th (2017) anniversary commemorations will be displayed throughout the event. This will form the basis of a short presentation (40 minutes) before an open discussion in which audience members are welcome to share their own memories as well as bringing along their own memorabilia and photographs.
Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for Questions & Answers (Q&A) before allowing time for everyone to view and/or contribute to the display. Audience members are free to stay for as much or as little of the event as they wish.

This free community event has only been possible because of Harlow Civic Society, and the support of Harlow Council and Royal Holloway, University of London. To evidence this event's outcomes to supporters, photos taken during the event will be shared with and potentially publicised by Harlow Council / Royal Holloway. In booking a ticket you acknowledge this use of photography and give permission for photos to be shared with Harlow Council / Royal Holloway.
Event organisers will also contact ticket holders who attended the event to invite them to complete an evaluation and monitoring form, the purpose of this is to evidence (Re)Telling's outcomes within Harlow and the wider community.

About the Venue:
"The Museum is located in the former Mark Hall stables, linked with the Mark Hall Manor House – it is surrounded by the beautiful 16th century Walled Gardens.
Four main galleries tell the story of Harlow over four periods: from the designing of the New Town, through the Victorians, Stuart and Tudor times, reaching back to the remarkable local Roman finds.
The Museum’s Heritage Centre provides a quiet study room, archive materials and newspaper records and services provided in partnership with the Essex Record Office, such as online access to parish records".
"Harlow Museum and Walled Gardens are both suitable for visitors in wheelchairs and we have disabled restroom facilities. Please note that some outside pathways are shingle surfaced.
Disabled car parking is available. Assistance dogs are welcome". 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Not at all, this is a family-friendly event and not exclusively for members of Harlow Civic Society. Everyone is welcome so do please get involved.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Harlow Museum has a large car park with disabled parking. However, if you are able to, the organiser(s) encourage the use of public transport. The venue is well served by public transport, with the 510 bus leaving from the Town Centre every 30 minutes and buses connecting Harlow Town Station to the Town Centre.
The museum also has bike locking facilities for cyclists.
What can I bring into the event?
The event aims to evoke memories of Harlow's 40th and 70th anniversaries, and so audience members are invited to bring along any personal photos or memorabilia of either/both events (although this is completely up to you and not essential).
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please feel free to contact Jake Shepherd (jake.shepherd@rhul.ac.uk) or Harlow Civic Society (harlowcivicsociety@gmail.com).
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, in fact, it would probably be more environmentally friendly if you are able to bring your e-ticket (sent via email from Eventbrite) but it is your choice.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
The organiser(s) will register audience members / ticket holders on the door, please don't worry if your name doesn't match the one on your ticket, just bare in mind it will be the one on your ticket that will be on the list.
