Heritage Day: Coffee Morning

Do you have memories of Dunstable Downs pre-1980? We'd love for you to join us for a coffee and a chat!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Staff at Dunstable Downs are often asked about different aspects of our history. A heritage memories project was therefore started to provide answers to those questions.

To culminate, in June 2024, we are hosting Dunstable Downs first ever heritage day! This aims to celebrate the Downs at work, rest and play throughout its extensive history.

To add to our historical records and to help us celebrate our rich heritage, we need your memories...

On March 14, we invite you to a coffee morning between 10.00am and 11.30am, to share your stories with us.

We are particularly interested in memories relating to wartime, sport and agriculture but everything, and anyone is welcome.

Please register your interest by calling 01582 5009200 or by emailing

We can't wait to hear from you!
