As part of Derbyshire LGBT’s history project “Other Stories”, we’ll be joining forces with Record Office in Matlock on 27 May to discover what resources and materials they have available that can help us uncover stories from LGBT+ history. Staff from the record office will talk attendees through the materials available and how they can be accessed, with a particular focus on LGBT+ relevant sources. Those attending will also be able to view the display on LGBT history on show at the Record Office until the end of the month. Full details:
Saturday 27 May, 10am-1pm – Derbyshire Record Office, New Street, Matlock DE4 3FE. Limited parking is available on site and there are a number of blue-badge spaces in the car park adjacent to the record office.
Attendees will be asked to sign-up as project volunteers before attending and will have the opportunity to learn skills that can help our project find more previously hidden stories from our community’s past.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to sign-up.
We will be announcing further training sessions like these throughout the project and in other locations around the county. This will include training on recording oral history interviews, so even if you can’t make these events, please get in touch by emailing email@example.com if you’re interested in attending in future.
