One of my latest forays into the fascinating world of local history is into the rich field of oral history.
I’m now involved in a project for Wolverhampton Central Youth Theatre exploring people’s experiences of shopping/trading in Wolverhampton, which will culminate in an exhibition and a production by CYT.
I’ll add a page about oral history – why it’s important, how to set about it – shortly. I hope you’ll find this interesting.
We are in the process of creating a website about the project – I’ll share this with you when it’s up and running. In the meantime, if you have any memories of shopping or trading in Wolverhampton (or any tips on oral history), please feel free to post them by using the comments box below.
