Letchworth Stories – Celebrating South Asian Heritage
I was very pleased to attend to the “Letchworth Stories, Celebrating South Asian Heritage” event on the 12th June, along with my colleague Sharon McCafferty, on behalf on North Hertfordshire Museum Service.
This event celebrated the work that has taken place on this Heritage Lottery Funded project so far and was an opportunity to launch the project to the wider community.
It took place at North Herts College, and consisted of delicious refreshments and Indian food, as well as a live performance by The Dhol Drummers Bhangra dancers, followed by audience participation in which we all learnt some of the basics of Bhangra dancing!
The event was well attended, including members of the community who have already been involved with the oral history and reminiscence work, and students and staff from Wilbury Junior School, University of Hertfordshire and Letchworth Community members, who produced a special a special short animation for the project.
