Share memories and make new ones at ‘Plymouth After Dark’ show and tell
Plymouth people can share their music memorabilia and memories in a special ‘show and tell’ event organised by The Box on Saturday 30 November.
‘Exposed: Plymouth After Dark’ will take place at the Hanging Gardens on Vauxhall Street from 1pm to 6pm.
Everyone is invited along to the free event to find out more about the ‘Plymouth After Dark’ project and, most importantly, share their collections from gigs past and present.
Tony Davey, Community Officer for The Box said: “We’d love to see as many people as possible at the event and hope they will bring along flyers, posters, ticket stubs, t-shirts, even dropped drumsticks – whatever they have from gigs that have taken place in Plymouth. We’d love to see them, scan them and hear more about why they’ve been kept and what they mean to you.”
The event will round off with a live 60-minute acoustic set from popular local band ‘Crazy Arm’.
“It should be a great afternoon,” continues Tony. “Hanging Gardens is an ideal venue that attracts musicians, DJs and bands from around the world. ‘Crazy Arm’ are one of the most established bands in the city with members who’ve been on the local music scene for the past 30 years. We’re looking forward to a fun event filled with music and memories that will add to all the great content we’ve already gathered for ‘Plymouth After Dark’.”
Launched in early 2017, ‘Plymouth After Dark’ is a four-year outreach project led by The Box and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The project is exploring the range of activity that takes place across the city at night with the aim of capturing stories from people of all ages and backgrounds and collecting objects to add to The Box’s permanent collections.
Some exciting events have already taken place over the last 18 months including a Sixties-themed event, a Family Rave and a series of film screenings. The project will culminate with an exhibition at The Box after it’s opened.
