Photo of handheld microphoneOral history interviews capture people’s stories, their lives and experiences in their own words and can form a hugely valuable part of the historical record. They are especially helpful when researching histories that have been marginalised, silenced or hidden.

As part of our current project, we are gathering oral history interviews with local LGBT+ residents. But we need your help!

Could you record someone’s story?

At this workshop run by a qualified Oral History Society trainer you will receive full training in oral history recording. We will then work with you to find suitable interviewees that you will interview in February and March.

Space on the training is very limited and booking is essential. Please email to book your place.
