The event is free but places are limited, so please book tickets.

Past Lives Project partners with archives across the Midlands to ensure that local movies, photos and oral history digitised through the project will stay publicly accessible and preserved for future generations, and to encourage people interested in heritage to connect to their local, regional and national archives.
