New Wall Display In The 96 Cafe

Monday 31 July 2023

We have a new display down the wall in the cafe on the ground floor of 96 Shenley Road. Here's a short explanation of the new panels :

Working with a collection of selected artefacts from Elstree and Borehamwood Museum, artists Anji Archer and Christina Armstrong of Open Art Box CIC, facilitated a series of six two hour workshops which took place at St Michael and All Angels Church in Borehamwood between March and June 2023.

These workshops ran on Monday afternoons where already a community group called Chatter Tables was operating. Anyone was welcome to join.

The workshops explored themes inspired by the Museum’s collection and the area’s local history. Each workshop focused on a different theme and encouraged sharing of stories amongst the group about their memories of Borehamwood. The participants were given the opportunity to learn more about the history of their local area as part of the workshops.

Here are some of the items they created :
