Wirksworth Heritage Centre launches its latest exhibition Ipods, Baboons and Crocodile Shoes this month, a journey into the lives and loves of the Wirksworth community, aged 10 to 108.
The Heritage Centre secured £6,000 from central government to develop the project, which saw Wirksworth Scouts and older members of the Wirksworth community work together to record each other’s lives using digital cameras, sound recorders, and artwork.
The exhibition will kick off with a private view for everyone involved in the project and will then be open to the public from Saturday, August 20, until September 2. Entrance price is £1 - kids (under 16) go free.
Wirksworth Heritage Centre is an Accredited Museum and registered charity run by volunteers with support from the town council. Its vision is to create, tell and share locally, regionally and nationally the living/continuing story of the people, history and heritage of Wirksworth in a vibrant, accessible and resourceful environment
Wirksworth Heritage Centre is open from Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30pm, and Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays, 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
