Annual Exibition

Our exhibition at Forge Mill Needle Museum is entitled

‘My Redditch Memories’, and runs from a period from

Thursday 31st October to Sunday 24th November 2019.

In this ‘living history’ exhibition, the Redditch Local

History Society are collecting together stories about

people and events in the town from a wide range of

residents

This does not only concern the pre-New Town ‘old’

Redditch, but also concerns later residents who came

to Redditch with the New Town Development and gives

a picture of life in the town over the past decades.

We looking for as many residents as possible to write

down one or more of their memories for us to include

in the exhibition, to give a good overall view of the

recent history of the town.

Annual Exhibition

Our exhibition at Forge Mill Needle Museum is

entitled ‘History that flows through the River Arrow’,

and runs from Wednesday 24th October to Sunday

25th November 2018.

Predating the habitation of the area, the River Arrow

came into existence at the time of the last ice age

nearly 12,000 years ago. Over the following millennia,

it has seen early man, the Roman invasion, the great

Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the Norman Conquest, the

expansion of monasteries, the Industrial Revolution,

the urbanisation of the population and the

development of the modern ‘New Towns’.

In this exhibition the Redditch Local History Society

using photographs, maps, drawings and artefacts

explores the history of this little river and its

importance to the history of Redditch and the local

area.
