Where: The Bath House, Gwydir Street, CB1 2BE

When: Thursday 14th November – drop in anytime between 1pm-8.30pm or book a slot for history training

Join community historian, Helen Weinstein, and artist in residence, Hilary Cox Condron at the Bath House to explore the history of Petersfield and The Ironworks through soundscapes, drawing, research and storytelling.

Hilary will be sharing the sounds, smells and stories of the Ironworks through time, to inspire large scale abstract drawings and decorating Ironworks Fringe planter sticks.

Helen will be guiding you through discovering your home’s history – were former occupants all railway workers? Just as likely dressmakers, bakers, chimney sweeps, printers, rat catchers, fossil diggers?

Find out how to share local history and stories through The IronWorks Blue Plaque project or get creative with the historical horticultural happenings of The Ironworks Fringe.

Explore our historical exhibition and find out how to contribute to the Museum of Cambridge’s ‘Capturing Cambridge’ website to create a long-lasting legacy for our community history project.
