Our Stockbridge Event

(This is outside NTBCC's area, but may be of interest to some readers.)

Did you know that Stockbridge once had a beetroot factory?

Or that you could have a bath at Glenogle Baths for a shilling?
Or that Henderson Row used to have a wash house, with a rocking horse inside to keep children entertained whilst mothers did the weekly wash?

From tales of days spent playing peevers and tig in the streets, to painful school punishments and sneaking into empty buildings after dark, Our Stockbridge is a film project that brings together the memories of local residents who grew up in Stockbridge between 1920 and 1960 and the creativity of local modern-day 10-13 year olds.

All ages welcome. Click here to reserve your free tickets.
