Setting Up
The village hall was transformed into an exciting, interactive exhibition
in just a few hours,
as artists and community members installed display
boards, projection screens, hung
exhibits from the rafters, decked
out a gazebo,
laid out table top displays and much more.

The Exhibits
The exhibits shared the many images, sounds and words from the project work with groups. Old photos, kindly donated by community members, helped to create the ‘BIG Portrait of a Village at Play’ across the sixty years. Creative work, illustrating play interests of community members was also exhibited.

Viewing the Exhibits
An intriguing focal point was the Environmental Group’s huge map of the village which visually plotted many memories of play and project finds around Wolvey, as well as sound recordings of play memories by long-time village residents. Wolvey Local History Group brought part of their photographic archive which created massive interest.
