Celebrate history of Newham community at Stratford museum
The Reminiscence session at a pop-up museum in Stratford returns for residents past and present to share their local memories.
Following the success of last week’s event, The People’s Museum and Gallery of Newham will be encouraging more people to come along.
Today, Friday, Robert Rogers will be giving a talk on the defunct West Ham Speedway where he will be showing off his old photographs and memorabilia.
On Saturday, Stratford Village Artist Alison Marchant returns for another workshop from 2pm to 4pm to produce some local art for an exhibition next month.
Curated by Eastside Community Heritage (ECH), the museum aims to tell working class stories of the last century through a programme of workshops, exhibitions, films, and talks.
