After almost three years of uncovering stories and responses to the Beaford Archive we have been inspired by the knowledge and passion for local heritage in each of the communities we have worked with. This summer we will be working with eight communities to discover what they think is important about their local history, and to develop eight distinct exhibitions to showcase their findings and reflections. 

Connecting with the local schools, local history groups, community archives and other established events and celebrations, these exhibitions will be an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the heritage of their locality. 

Join us at each location listed below for a culmination of community curated displays of photographs and oral history interviews from the Beaford Archive, talks from local experts, interactive workshops, competitions and activities, and the chance to see parts of the major ‘Here: Uncovering North Devon’ exhibition , before it goes on national tour!
