Join us in the churchyard of St John the Baptist to be among the first to try out Epping's listening bench. The bench plays archive clips from oral history interviews and public talks describing Epping in years gone by, going back as far as the nineteenth century. When did the first motor car drive down the High Street? What do Verderers of Epping Forest do? Learn all this and more by listening to the audio on the bench.
The opening event will also give you an opportunity to talk to some of the volunteers involved with putting together the audio, and meet some relatives of the interviewees featured on the bench.
Free, no need to book.
This event is part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project, You Are Hear: sound and a sense of place. How many benches can you find? http://www.essexsounds.org.uk/content/category/benches
