Thank you to those of you who attended the Artefacts Roadshow events at Reading Museum in recent months.
On three occasions we displayed historical items that were used ‘back home’ before Barbadians moved to Reading in the 50s and 60s.
The High Commissioner Mr Guy Hewitt recently attended the Artefacts Roadshows to enjoy the display and here are some comments from visitors:
“This was a lovely display of artefacts but the conversations with the people made the visit, an event – thank you”
“Very informative – the artefacts and photographs with the text underneath paint a whole picture of the time and place”
“Awesome experience talking to the team –a walk down memory lane – thank you”
We have exciting news to announce about a Museum display and cultural extravaganza so watch this space.
