We are now setting up for the MemoryScapes tea party and exhibition at KWMC. The event is free and open to everyone and we will also be providing complimentary afternoon tea. Hope to see you there!
The reminiscence chest has reached it's final stop on the tour: Knowle West Media Centre. It will be here for a couple of weeks, ready for the tea party event on the 5th March. Be sure to pop down and see it now if you aren't around for the event.
On March 5th between 5pm and 7.30pm Knowle West Media Centre will be hosting a free community tea party to celebrate the memories of South Bristol. Come along and indulge in the free afternoon tea and get involved with our art installation based on the stories of local residents, share your own memories with other local people and explore the archive of memorabilia we have collected. All ages welcome!
The MemoryScapes Chest is now at Knowle West Children's Centre all week for everyone to come and view. Pop down at lunch time or when you pick your kids up and someone from KWMC will be there to show you how it works, but it is open to the public throughout The centre's regular opening times too. There's space to record your own memories of South Bristol, explore the memories of other residents or just to sit down and watch old films in the original Filwood Broadway cinema seats.
