VE Day ‘Show an object, tell a story’

Tuesday, 9 June, 2020 , 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

We would like to invite you to join us for a digital history event. In memory of the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, we will be hosting an online “bring an object, tell a story” event. We are looking for Second World War objects with an interesting five minute (or less!) story attached. A Mill Road or Cambridge connection is welcome but not essential.

How will it work? The event will be hosted on Zoom. If you have an object and a story, please let us know by emailing admin@millroadhistory.org.uk with a photograph of the object and a short summary of the story. The meeting host will invite people to share one at a time, by either sharing an image of the object, or holding the object up to the camera, and talking about the object’s story.

This event will take place at 7:30pm on Tuesday 9th June. You can download the Zoom software from https://zoom.us. The meeting link will be https://zoom.us/j/94789375814?pwd=M0NLOVg5WEJWVGxrb2ZGZjVwa1Zhdz09.

The link will be active from 7:15pm to allow everyone time to get connected. It will be free to view however, if you enjoy it, a donation to our PayPal account is always appreciated. You can find the donation button on the front page of our website https://millroadhistory.org.uk
