Memory Bank: Hull Workshops & Dementia Cafe’s
Memory Bank: Hull is The History Troupe’s collaboration with Yorkshire Film Archive and the Clinical Commissioning Group Hull. Healthcare professionals, carers, families and schools to provide a complete resource for reminiscence and life story work.
The History Troupe has integrated this content into workshops in schools and across the community, dementia café’s and a range of our performances. The packs are all about using archive footage of familiar faces, places, events and everyday lives to re-discover and connect with our collective shared memories.
For people of Hull that means films of the docks and the fishing industry, summer days spent in East Park getting drenched on the splash boat, reliving the drama of the 1980 Rugby Challenge Cup Final between Hull FC and Hull KR, and – of course – a visit to the famous Hull Fair. All this and more! There are options according to your needs:
