Exhibition - Terrys Springs

2nd  February to 5th March 2017

The first exhibition of 2017 looked at the story of Terry's springs and was told through a wealth of photographs and press clippings, covering topics from the origins of the company; the rich social scene, sports, the famous dinner dances, long service presentations, photos of the workers and the factory from the 1940s to 1960s.

Memorabilia included a look at many of the products that made Terry's famous.

Anyone who worked at Terry's or was interested in the history of that iconic business will find a wealth of fascinating information.

Henry, the cat, wasn't part of the exhibition but was prepared to be friendly with anyone who might lead him to his next, frequent, meal.

Each Wednesday of the exhibition, Dave King (an ex-employee of Terrys) was available in the gallery from 12.30 to 3.30pm to talk and share his memories about this famous Redditch company.
