Tea + Memories

Time: to

St Barbe Museum + Art Gallery will be hosting an event over two afternoons showcasing our historic collection of images and objects covering topics related to a childhood in the New Forest; family, school days, play and fun, toys, and clubs and activities!

This time the theme is ‘Childhood’

We have looked through our collection and gathered a selection of nostalgic images each with a story to tell. These include historic family portraits, play dates, school photos, scout and guide meetings and camps, and festivals and events being celebrated in local towns and villages. The images are full of local people, so why not come along to see how many you can recognise or whether there are any pictures of you? We’d love to hear stories from your childhood.

This free event will be held at St Barbe on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 July from 2–4pm. All visitors are welcome to drop in for tea and biscuits and to share their memories, or just join in to look through the lovely photos of times gone by, which are sure to make you smile.
