Ten ob­jects to sum up town’s his­tory

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

THE Light­box mu­seum in Wok­ing is 10 years old on Thurs­day.

As part of its ex­cit­ing cel­e­bra­tions the mu­seum team has dug through its her­itage col­lec­tion to find 10 items that cap­ture the town’s his­tory.

The list forms a small part of the mu­seum’s 10th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, which in­clude a pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion, a dis­play mark­ing 70 years of Ken­wood kitchen ap­pli­ances, an an­niver­sary lec­ture and, on Satur­day Septem­ber 16, a fam­ily friendly birth­day party.

Hu­mans have lived in Wok­ing for around 5,000 years, and The Light­box has thou­sands of ob­jects in its col­lec­tion, so nar­row­ing them down to just 10 was no easy task.
