Louth Market Place
18 October to 28 October 2023
The history of Louth Market Place, an exhibition of photos, information, and audio recordings, prepared by Keith Angel, Dave Angel and Lynsey Allett.
Spectrum Arts are running a year-long project, funded by the heritage Lottery Fund, that encourages local people to explore and celebrate the heritage of Louth Market. The work will include oral history, sounds of the market, tales from the traders and shoppers, a history of important events, and a look ahead to the market of the future. The Louth Museum exhibition forms part of the project, along with a website and large-format book, featuring stories and photos from the past and present. The displays will include many old and unusual pictures and stories about the market. These will be accompanied by examples from our programme of oral history interviews, presented in traditional written form and also as part of an audio-visual soundscape experience, designed to immerse the listener in the atmosphere and sounds of the market. There will also be a film made up from old and contemporary market footage, along with audio and art works created by the pupils of local schools as part of their project work.
