Jive Talking: Drop In

Jive Talking: Drop In


Join us at Abbey House as we get ready for our 2020 exhibition looking at music around Leeds.  This will be a drop in session where you can come along and share your musical memories with us.  We will have some images and items from the collection for people to have a look at, and there may be a chance to have your story recorded as an oral history. 

You can also bring in photographs of concerts, dances or gigs you have been to in Leeds which you are happy for us to scan, so they can be seen on our digital screen for the exhibition. 

We are also looking for certain items to add to our collections – if you think you can help with this then please get in touch before the event so we can let you know what gaps we have and talk things through. t:  0113 3784079  e:
