Quad buries time capsule for five years

Derby arts centre Quad has buried a time capsule in its walls as a finalé event of its current Time-Travel season.

The time capsule has been buried in a wall on its mezzanine level, complete with a plaque to mark the spot.

It celebrated both the end of the Time-Travel season there and Quad’s fifth anniversary. The capsule will not be opened until the year 2018, when it will be unearthed from the walls, examined and then re-buried for a further five years.

The contents of the capsule will contain a number of special items – including a copy of the first ever cinema ticket bought at Quad, images from Quad’s numerous educational activities and 3D printed images of staff.
