Higher Rhythm’s Doncaster Sound Memories project has delivered its exciting finale… We’ve created a large-scale Doncaster Sound Memories public exhibition, wrapped around the corner of our building on Nether Hall Road.
Funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, the project has engaged local people to contribute stories about encounters with music artists in Doncaster. The project has captured, preserved and celebrated these music memories of local people. The stories are based on oral historical accounts of musical events and encounters people have experienced in Doncaster. People have also participated in training and as volunteers. We’ve underpinned the entire project with interviews, broadcast as special features on Sine FM.
The last part of the project is this exhibition. The exhibition features excerpts from 24 of the stories contributed by local people. Stories range from having breakfast with the Beatles, to pushing Captain Sensible down the street in a shopping trolley!
Measuring 10m wide and 3m high, it’s also one of the largest permanent public exhibitions ever created in Doncaster. Being street-based, the Doncaster Sound Memories exhibition is free to visit and it’s even illuminated at night for 24/7 viewing.
Since the exhibition has gone live we’ve counted hundreds of people each day stopping as they walk past to view the exhibition. Make sure you get down to have a look and use the QR code displayed to send us your feedback.
