Oral History links the past to the present by recording personal testimonies and using them to interpret special places.
Our archive holds over 50 peoples' memories, some of which were used to recreate the 1970s Bedsit.

Women in The Workhouse Exhibition
Focussing on more recent times, the exhibition draws on 10 years of interviews from women who lived, worked, grew up and visited relatives here.
Some memories are good, recalling fun times with colleagues. However, some are bad, telling of the heart-breaking situations some single-parent families found themselves in.
This season, discover what life was like here, how it felt to live and work in The Workhouse, and how social care has developed over the past 50 years.
