The Station is looking for people who remember Richmond Station in its former days to share their memories as part of a new project.
March 2019 marks fifty years since the closure of the old station and the occasion is to be marked by a special exhibition of photographs, maps and artefacts alongside audio recordings of people’s stories.
Communications Coordinator Jemma Gregory says, “We are so excited to be commemorating this special occasion. We have so many visitors who come into the building and tell us all about how they remember travelling from here or how family members worked here so it will be fantastic to gather these stories together, paying tribute to the past whilst looking forward to the future.”
The Station has taken on the media expertise of Philip Day from Harrogate College - who also happens to be a railway enthusiast - to help curate the exhibition, which will run from 2nd – 20th March 2019. Free heritage tours will also take place around this time to give visitors and locals a chance to experience the history of the building.
If you have a story to share, no matter how big or small, please come to The Station on either 4th or 11th December, anytime between 11am and 3pm. If possible, please bring a photograph of you at the approximate age you were at the time of your story. If you are unable to make either of these dates but are happy to tell your story, please email your words to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact The Station on 01748 850123 and ask for Jemma or Thea.
