Plymouth After DarkEmail Facebook
‘Plymouth After Dark’ is an outreach project currently running in the city and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It’s exploring the range of activities that take place across Plymouth at night with the aim of capturing peoples’ stories and memories, collecting objects and memorabilia and commissioning new work. The project will culminate in an exhibition at The Box once it’s opened to the public.
Anyone can get involved and that’s where you can help. Take a look in your attic, drawers and cupboards to see if you have anything that will help us tell the story of the city when the lights go down. It could be a concert ticket, poster, flyer or even an autograph of your favourite performer that you waited three hours in the rain to get!
You can contact the project team by email. A Facebook Group has also been set up. Anyone can join and you can also check out everyone else’s fantastic contributions while you’re there.
Previous posts on the page that have generated lots of discussion include memories of seeing David Bowie play Plymouth Guildhall in 1972, and a discussion about the local pubs that people miss experiencing live music in.
The page also publishes a weekly Top 10 Playlist provided by invited guests, ranging from staff at The Box to local superstar musicians like Jamie Lawson and Seth Lakeman.
