There are many ways you can contribute
Have you got anything you’d like to share? We’re very interested to hear your stories about the livestock market, and we’d also love to see any photographs, video or film you may have, so that we can create a rich historical record for all to see and enjoy.
We have created a film that is just over an hour long, but we have always known that what we collect for the film was only ever going to be a tiny fraction of all the memories, photographs, film clips and other memorabilia connected to the market.
So we would love to carry on collecting
Here’s a few ideas
Come and see us at any of these events and bring along photographs or record your story with us:
Borderlines Film Festival in the Courtyard foyer on 11th March from 2pm-4.30pm or 16th March 2pm-4.30pm. Get directions
