Find out about Blockley 50 years ago at summer exhibition
VILLAGERS can find out how Blockley folk lived 50 years ago with a summer exhibition.
Blockely Heritage Society exhibition “Down Memory Lane” is being held at the Blockley Heritage Centre on Saturday.
Photographs, tools and other artefacts relating to domestic life, music, games and pastimes, sport, crafts and gardening will be on display from 10am to 5pm.
Exhibits will also include a mangle, a wind-up gramophone, items from the Blockley Brass band, a piano manufactured in Blockley by Acocks, flat irons and a period stove, a trouser stretcher, stone cider jars, a milk churn and ladle and a Singer sewing machine.
During the day, there will be opportunities to play children’s games of yesteryear, to see examples of a recent heritage project carried out by children from Blockley School and to hear a short demonstration of the Acocks piano played by Doreen Robinson.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to taste bread pudding made from a war-time recipe.
The event cosincides with the publication of a fully revised and updated edition of “Blockley through Twelve Centuries” which has been published by Blockley Heritage Society.
