The archive group put on public displays and workshops about specific topics throughout the year and carry out oral history interviews.
These events involve searching through our catalogue and choosing photographs and documents to display.We learn more about the topics and the resources we have available in the archive and we also invite "guest tables" to the displays where local residents can show their personal collections.
Recent projects and events have included tourism in Arnside, the history of schools in Arnside, houses in Arnside, the history of the parish of Arnside, and the Maritime Heritage of Arnside. We mounted a display of local archival resources about World War 1 to coincide with the armistice weekend.
We are always open to suggestions for future themes.
