Local and Family History Fair, Waterfront Museum, Saturday 10 October …

The Local & Family History Fair 2015 will be held for the fifth year at the National Waterfront Museum on Saturday 10 October. Formerly Local History . . . Live!, the event has been expanded to reflect the varied interests of participants and visitors.

The 60 Second Show and Tell starts at 2pm. Root through your sheds and attics and bring an object to baffle the Museum’s curators – watch them squirm as they try to explain an object without hesitation or deviation in just one minute!
