Live History - Circa @ True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum | England | United Kingdom

Live History is coming to True’s Yard!

Live History is a theatre company based out of Ottawa, Canada, that specialises in bringing your local history to life! On Thursday 1st June at 6pm they will be performing Circa- an adventure through time!

CIRCA

written by Jeremy Jagusch

It’s almost closing time at the museum when you run into a strange figure, dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover they are in the modern era, and many of things they remember and love are now behind glass. They have no recollection of who they are, or how they got there. Only items from the past seem to trigger memories and stories about their identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from the main exhibit’s time period, and travel through other exhibits, searching for clues. Make sure to avoid the security guard at closing time in order to help Circa find their identity; the ultimate treasure.

What better way for schools, local clubs and tourists to learn, enjoy and experience the past of your town then to live it.

Tickets are £10 and are available from True’s Yard call 01553 770479 or email info@truesyard.co.uk . Places are limited to 30 so book soon to avoid disappointment!

A Time of Reflection, True’s Yard’s Christmas Exhibition @ True's Yard
Nov 24 @ 11:00 am – Dec 22 @ 12:00 pm

A Time of Reflection

Christmas Exhibition at True’s Yard

 

The centrepiece of the ‘A Time of Reflection’ exhibition is a commemorative Christmas Tree, which visitors can add memories & messages to loved ones on. Tea lights for the glass globes can also be bought to light a candle in remembrance of relatives.

There are also archive pictures from Christmases’ past, memories from the sound archive, fun facts decorated by our volunteers, and objects.

 Although Christmas Day would have been very different for the fisherfolk to our modern standards, the fundamental element of family and tradition remains. Presents, if there were any, would be practical. While today children may dream of toys and sweets in their stocking, a new pair of boots would be the greatest gift as many North End children had to walk barefoot in the snow to school. 

The exhibition at the North Street museum opens Friday 24nd November at noon, and will run until midday on December 22nd.

 

For further details call 01553 770479 or email info@truesyard.co.uk
