6th May – 19th July 2014
What makes a town and a community a great place to live?
Narberth has received its fair share of plaudits over the years and many highlight the unique sense of place that visitors (as well as those lucky enough to call it home) appreciate so much.
Narberth Museum is looking to celebrate this community spirit with a new exhibition to mark its twenty-fifth anniversary.
“We Are Narberth” will acknowledge the individuals and organisations who have contributed so much to the life of the town – the local characters, carnivals, festivals, scouts, guides, sports teams, churches and chapels, women’s groups, schools and many others. Drawing on its extensive photographic collection, the event will be an opportunity to gather information as well as display previously unseen images.
“We’re hoping that local residents of all ages will come along and help us identify people and places, reminisce and share their memories” said curator, Pauline Griffiths. Visitors will be encouraged to bring along photos that can be scanned there and then and added to the Museum’s archives.
The exhibition, which starts on May 6th and runs until 19th July, is free but normal Museum entry charges apply. There will be organised reminiscence sessions during the course of the exhibition where people will be encouraged to share their memories over a cup of tea or coffee. Half-price season tickets are available for local residents so that visitors can return as often as they wish – whether it be to this exhibition, the return of Landsker Quilters’ popular display in the summer or our exhibition commemorating the start of the Great War later in the year.
