Charlton Parks Reminiscence Project has been running since April 2011. During that time we have developed the Charlton Parks Reminiscence Project (CPRP) web site which is being launched in preparation for the exhibition, recorded over 40 interviews and held two public events at Charlton House.
The exhibition will be displayed at Charlton House in the Grand Salon between Monday June 25th and Friday 6th July. On display will be copies of articles, extracts from books, maps and photographs that the project team has discovered amongst various archives including London Metropolitan Archives, Greenwich Heritage Centre, the Royal Artillery Historical Trust and people’s personal collections.
You will also be able to read or listen to extracts from interviews with local people recounting stories from their youth, memories of remarkable events such as the opening of Maryon Wilson Park in 1926, the Bread Pudding Jumper, school days in Charlton Park Open Air School and many more.
Come and see the exhibition, listen to people’s stories and record your own to put onto the web site. Let us know if there are stories or facts you think we have missed.
