Something Old, Something New Exhibition

Something Old, Something New Exhibition

To celebrate Hertfordshire’s rich cultural diversity Hertfordshire Archives & Local Studies undertook research into the customs and traditions of the county.

Hertfordshire’s ancient rural traditions are revealed through reading of the archive collections. Oral history interviews demonstrate the diversity of different cultures and individuals who have made their home in the county and the traditions they have brought with them.

These customs are explored in our new foyer exhibition, including objects from the archive and on loan from Hertfordshire Museums.
You will also have the opportunity to listen to the oral histories recorded and record your own memories with the use of oral history booths.
