Help share Doncaster’s history

A free event on Saturday is looking for heritage items to tell Doncaster’s story in more depth.

Do you have any Mexborough pottery?  Or any 1960s board games?  Or memories of Beechfield House?  Do you have an album or collection of local photos going back over the years?

Heritage Doncaster is looking for objects and stories from across the borough to include in the new museum when it opens next year.

You’re invited to take any interesting items to the Mansion House on Saturday 28th September from 11am-3pm.

There’s also a series of community based roadshows at:

  • Woodlands Community Library on 30th September
  • Marlborough Library on 7th October
  • Thorne Library on 14th October

At any of these events, Heritage Doncaster want to hear your stories behind the objects and photos.  Experts will also help you to uncover more about your items.  Heritage Doncaster will photograph items and put them forward for selection for the displays in the new Museum.
