Oral History Interviews

In 2020 we asked you for your memories of Loughborough’s Fair and Markets. We had lots of individuals share their stories via the written word, photographs and some agreed to be interviewed by our fantastic volunteers!  The volunteers were given oral history interview training by the University of Leicester. They then tailored interviews to participants to help ensure each persons’ story was properly captured for future generations. Clips of these interviews are now available to listen to below.

Our volunteers have captured some truly heart-warming memories in these interviews. We hope you enjoy listening to them and find yourself reminiscing as much as we have!
