Perton and Dudley History Fairs

Perton and Dudley History Fairs

On Saturday 5th October we managed to exhibit at not one but two shows simultaneously! Our main display was at Perton library while a second was held at Dudley Archives.

Our stands included details of our investigations at Oak House, Albrighton, Wrottesley, Himley and other sites, with reports, photographs and artefacts available for people to examine. In addition to our own stand there were exhibits from many other history related organisations, including local museums, genealogy groups and those representing National Trust properties.

Visitors were treated to a diverse range of stands, where they could see military items, old toys, a lace-making display, a selection of locally manufactured coffee mills, details of mining history and projects looking into the distant history of Cannock Chase. To complete the picture, several exhibitors were in period costume or military attire.

Apart from giving visitors plenty to look at, the fairs enabled us to renew old acquaintances and make new friends with like-minded organisations.
