THE ORAL HISTORY OF KNUTSFORD

THE ORAL HISTORY OF KNUTSFORD – A major new project by the Knutsford Heritage Centre 

Oral history is the recording of people’s memories, experiences and opinions.
It is:
  • A living history of everyone’s unique life experiences
  • An opportunity for those people who have been ‘hidden from history’ to have their voice heard
  • A rare chance to talk about and record history face-to-face
  • A source of new insights and perspectives that may challenge our view of the past
The Knutsford Heritage Centre believes that oral history is of great social importance and plans to create a permanent archive of personal recollections relating to the town’s past.
 Local residents will be invited to air their memories to a team of trained Heritage Centre volunteers. The recordings will be collected, catalogued and preserved to form a unique oral history of Knutsford throughout most of the 20th century to the present day.
For further information please contact Colin Evans on:caevans1947@gmail.com or via the Heritage Centre.
 *This project will be conducted within the Oral History Society guidelines for good practice in safeguarding the legal and ethical rights of those taking part.

We are open on Sundays!

We will be opening again on Sundays, commencing Easter Sunday afternoon.
