Scarborough Museums Trust and Yorkshire Coast Homes are excited to have partnered to deliver the ‘Outside the Box’ project.

We will be running free-of-charge Reminiscence sessions across Scarborough. Each session is open to everyone and will be an hour long, and take place once a month.

There are 10 different locations, so look out for your local one!

The sessions will involve handling objects from the Scarborough Museums Trust collections, which all come from within living memory.

Reminiscence has proved to be a really powerful tool for bringing people together to share their memories, and local schools and colleges will come along to hear the stories that people have to tell and record them.

The sessions will be a lovely opportunity to meet new friends, and enjoy sharing your memories and experiences with people of all ages.

We hope to see you there!
