Discover the history of your local area at a free event

Cambridgeshire residents are being given a unique opportunity to find out more about their own personal history as well as that of the local area.

Free workshops and talks will take place in Cambridge, St Neots and Wisbech during June and July in celebration of BBC Two’s The Great British Story: A People’s History series.

Through talks, writing and storytelling, residents will be invited to imagine the story behind an object, whether it’s their own or one belonging to items from Cambridgeshire Libraries, Archives and Museums.

“Come along and explore fascinating objects and paintings from the Cambridgeshire Collection and Archives, the Fitzwilliam Museum, St Neots Museum and Wisbech Museum and imagine the story behind them.”
