Exhibition: Testament to Youth

23 July 2018 - 14 September 2018

Testament to Youth

A summer-long exhibition that focuses on being young in Cambridgeshire
join us for an exclusive insight into growing up in the city and across the county.

Drawing upon the many oral history interviews gathered as part of our Tracing Traditions and Capturing Cambridge projects, Testament to Youth explores 60 years of memories and reminiscences gathered from the people of Cambridgeshire. Using a variety of objects from our own collection, we will chart the evolution of toys and clothing through the years and the influence they have had on our childhood.

Hear Richard Pedler recall childhood games on “the hills” in the village of Thriplow
