Welcome to the October 2022 autumn edition of the Heritage Hub e.newsletter
In September the Heritage Hub hosted talks and events as part of the Voices Gloucester community programme.
The Heritage Schools initiative funded by Historic England and attended by teachers from 14 schools was a particular highlight. You can read more HERE.
Many more events were held in other interesting locations across the city too. The Sherborne Cinema hosted the premier of the two Kindertransport films commissioned by the Archives (read more HERE), whilst the Picturedrome in Barton Street hosted the premier of a short but moving film about Gloucester’s first inter-racial marriage and an exhibition of Gloucester’s carnival processions over the years.

We look forward to many more fruitful collaborations over the coming years.
