If These Walls Could Talk: Lancaster Edition–Call for true stories

Lancaster Stories
Do you have a true story about Lancaster?

If you have visited, worked in (past/current) or lived in or near (past/current) Lancaster and have a true story to tell, why not share it May 6 at the Lancaster University Community Day special edition If These Walls Could Talk: Lancaster Open-Mic?

What kind of stories can you share?

True, well-told stories about things you have done, people you’ve met, things you’ve seen, objects (or people) you’ve left behind, things you’ve learned or forgotten. True stories about escapes, encounters, close calls and memories. Stories about loss and found love, first dates, first days of work (and last). Tales of tours, visits and explorations. You name it—you tell it.

Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017
Time: 3-4 PM
Location: Lancaster University, LICA Building

For more information or to schedule your 3-5 minute open mic slot, please email Yvonne at ybattlefelton@gmail.com

If These Walls Could Talk

If These Walls Could Talk is a radio show that celebrates stories from within the walls of some of Britain’s iconic heritage sites. For one hour, guests, employees, vendors, visitors, and neighbors share true stories of love, loss, meetings, missed connections, interviews, visits, work, haunting, trials, shows, exhibits, secrets: stories that capture the human experience within the walls of British heritage sites.

Shared through a series of interviews, these true stories capture the sometimes hidden histories of public spaces. In their own voices, the guests make the past more intimate, immediate and accessible by sharing their true stories about people they’ve met, things they’ve seen, things they’ve found or left behind; about escapes, encounters, first days of work and last. Through winding sometimes whimsical narratives the guests answer the question:if these walls could talk, what stories would they tell? What kind of stories am I looking for?

True stories that make listeners laugh, cry, think, feel, engage, wonder, imagine… Stories that take us behind the walls of British Heritage sites and more importantly, your stories.

If these walls could talk, what stories would they tell?
