Harlow listening bench to be unveiled

RESIDENTS are invited to join The Museum of Harlow for the official unveiling of Harlow’s listening bench on Saturday 16 September 2017 at 2pm.

The park bench with speakers will play clips of recordings from the Essex Sound and Video Archive as well as selections chosen by volunteers who work at the Museum. Come along and listen to memories of the first inhabitants of the New Town, and Old Town responses. The bench is part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project, You Are Hear: sound and a sense of place, and is one of 18 benches being installed across Essex.

For more information on the benches visit www.essexsounds.org.uk/content/category/benches

While you are at the Museum, why not visit the new exhibition, Photos of Harlow: Old and New, in celebration of the New Town’s 70th anniversary.

Normal museum admission costs apply.
