For last 2016 exhibition in the museum’s gallery we hosted a display by Redditch Local History Society entitled ‘Redditch: Its Farming History’.
The exhibition began on Wednesday 26th October and ran until Sunday 27th November. The exhibition uses maps, photographs, drawings, sales documents and information to show the farming history of Redditch over the past 100 years.
During the Wednesdays of the exhibition the Society had ‘drop in’ sessions where members of the History Society will be available to discuss the exhibition with visitors.
This was a very successful exhibition and had a lot of response from local residents and the History Society obtained much useful information for their archives.
