Last night Pinning Reading’s History exhibition launched, attended by over a hundred people including local archivists, teachers, residents, community groups and Historypin Champions & volunteers from all around Reading and beyond.
Nick Stanhope, Historypin CEO, spoke about Reading’s rich history and encouraged everyone in Reading to dig out their photos and share them on Historypin.
It was a fantastic evening, with many stories shared, some new archives discovered and lots of excitement to start digging out and pinning Reading’s history.
Thanks to everyone who came, and we look forward to working with you to share Reading’s history over the coming months.The exhibition showcases some of the content collected so far and runs until January 8th. Soane space at Reading Museum
Drop-in session every Friday, 2-4pm, Soane space, Reading Museum.
Meet our volunteers, and bring your stories & photos to scan and pin or contact Amanda Holland on email@example.com or 07527 931325 to arrange a time to come in and share your history.
We would also like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for the funding that has made this project possible.
