For The Record

For The Record

We created something pretty special ahead of the City of Culture year.

We've been out and about talking to people about their memories of growing up in East Yorkshire...and no, you didn't have to be ancient to take part! What do you remember about growing up, your primary school, what's your earliest memory, where was the first place you worked? The kind of family stories that you tell again and again are the ones we enjoyed hearing you share.

We've created what they call 'social history'. A collection of audio that will be permanently archived to form a slice of history - thanks to Hull Libraries and Hull History Centre for keeping it all safe for everyone to enjoy. You can see what they're up to by clicking here.

You can listen again to some of the fantastic audio we've collected below, and don't miss some fantastic photos at the bottom of the page too!
