Do you remember the moon landing?

Do you remember the moon landing?

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, we have been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant for the 'Moon Stories' project, to record over 40 Derbyshire people's stories and memories of watching the first human walk on the Moon in 1969. The results will form a comprehensive archive to be kept at the Derbyshire Records Office and also to be used by the young people as inspiration to create art.

We are looking for Derbyshire residents who would like to share their Moon stories and memories. On Saturday 28 September 2019 our team of young people will be at Derby Cathedral at the same time as the spectacular, Museum of the Moon as part of Derby Festé - ready to record your story! We will be allocating time slots between 10.30am and 3pm and each session will last for around 30 minutes.

If you would like to share your memories please email jenny@adversecamber.org with your contact details and we'll get back to you ASAP.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Moon Stories is being developed in collaboration with Derbyshire Virtual School and has also received support from the Royal Astronomical Society so young people can learn more about lunar science. Adverse Camber is also grateful for support from Derbyshire Records Office, East Midlands Oral History Archive and Scopes4SEN.
