Brighton History Open House 2019

The seventh annual Brighton History Open House will be held at the Brighton Community Centre on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm. The theme this year is Archives of Brighton which means visitors will see all sorts of archived collections and documents that normally are kept behind closed doors.

The Brighton Digital Archives will be front and centre and will feature a theatre where visitors can watch the videos BDA has produced, including the Memory Junction Museum videos and the brand new Rural Roots video series. This is a video version of the Rural Roots show from our 2018 events in which The History Guy presents the history of farming in a different form. See Rural Roots in video for the first time at Open House 2019!

Of course, The History Guy will have extensive displays along with Susan Brose and regulars like Proctor House and the Women's Institute. Oh, yes, visitors will be able to enjoy the Heritage Tea provided by the two WI's. This event is always lots of fun, as well as providing good opportunities for learning about local history. Hope to see you there!
