Families invited to jubilee celebration event
5:10pm Thursday 17th May 2012 in News
TOWN families can help bring the 1950s back to life during a special event to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Droitwich Library, Victoria Square, will hold the event in its gallery on Saturday, June 2.
Families are invited to sign up for the 90 minute sessions where there will be opportunities to discover what Droitwich was like in the 1950’s, and create their own jubilee crafts and poetry.
There will be two 90 minute sessions, the first from 10.30am - noon and the second from 2 – 3.30pm.
Refreshments will be provided and tickets cost £1 per family. See library staff for more details and information.
Droitwich Library will also run a special Jubilee Story Time at 11am in the children’s library.
The “Our Jubilee” project, an offshoot of the “Our War” Digital Archive for Droitwich Spa, will also be looking for residents to share their memories of the Queen’s Accession and Coronation in 1952/53.
Eve Freer and Friends of the “Our War” Project will be available in the library to listen to and record such memories throughout the day.
There will also be a display of Jubilee memorabilia, books and local history documents, including local newspapers from the time, available for the public to view on the first floor of the library building.
