Celebrating people's memories of the town.
20th November 2023 - 10 am - 1 pm at Middlesbrough Town Hall
Join us for a free event for older people to celebrate Middlesbrough's past, present, and future. The event will feature various activities, art exhibitions, and interactive workshops that gather people's memories of the town.
There will be information stalls with local community groups, organisations, and support services for older people providing advice and guidance on a range of issues. No booking is required. Light refreshments will be provided.
A Postcard from Middlesbrough
Part of the event will feature A Postcard from Middlesbrough which is a project that aims to capture people’s memories of the town, Middlesbrough’s picturesque landscapes, iconic landmarks and hidden gems. Through this project, we encourage people of all ages, whether Middlesbrough residents or visitors to design their unique postcard or write a description of their most cherished memory associated with the town. If you or your group would like to take part in the project, simply get in touch.
We will send you a pack with a blank postcard to decorate or write on, a prepaid addressed envelope, and some further instructions. Your postcard will be displayed at the event on 20th November 2023 at the Middlesbrough Town Hall, between 10 am and 1 pm. You will also have a chance to enter a raffle and win some exciting prizes. All the postcards are anonymous and we are not sharing your data with anyone.
We can also visit your group and provide arts and crafts materials to design postcards (pens, fabric, paint etc.).
