Are you listening carefully?

We are proud to announce that Harlow Museum is the next location for the imaginative Essex Record Office “You are Hear” project.

Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens will hold the launch of Harlow’s very own listening bench: a park bench with speakers that plays clips of recordings from the Essex Sound and Video Archive, recordings revealing perspectives from both Old and New Town residents.

This is part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project at the Essex Record Office, You Are Hear: sound and a sense of place. You can be one of the first to try out Harlow’s bench and enjoy the personal stories behind the New Town development.

The Harlow Listening Bench will be unveiled at our local Museum at 2pm on Saturday September 16th, 2017.
