Archives from the Attic on 25th May

Archives from the Attic 2013: The Way We Live
Saturday 25 May, 10am to 4pm
Portland Square Building, Plymouth University, Drake Circus, Plymouth PL4 8AA
Come along to this event to find out more about your own old documents and photos. Experts from Plymouth City Council’s Record Office, the Friends of Devon Archives and the Devon Family History Society will be on hand to chat about any historic documents you bring along. These might include anything from property deeds, family business records, letters and diaries to maps, plans, accounts, minutes or records of an event. There will also be a range of talks throughout the day as well as information stands from local heritage organisations. Admission is free and there is no need to book. Drop in for as little or as long as you like.

The Plymouth LGBT Archive will be part of this day, offering a LGBT History Tour from 11 am where you can discover more about this previously hidden aspect of Plymouth’s history with a family-friendly walk around city centre sites that have relevance to the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Admission is free but advance booking is essential on plymlgbtarchive@yahoo.co.uk and then at 12.30 at the Devonport Lecture Theatre you can come along and listen to Alan Butler giving an update on the successful Pride in Our Past project 12 Months on, highlighting the archive’s continued evolution.
