Tunstall Park WW1 Event

On Sunday we had a stand at the First World War Centenary Event at Tunstall Park, with a “pop-up” museum. The Apedale Valley Light Railway were there too, on the stand right next to us which worked well. We had a brilliant day, although the wind was a bit of a challenge, our display boards started off on the table then propped up on chairs and finally on the floor as they kept on getting blown over. The stand was packed and we met loads of interesting people, many of them ex-miners who told us some fascinating tales. Now that we have a taste for it, if you have an event planned and you’d like us to bring our stall along do drop us a line!
Thanks to Ken Perkins for the photos.
