Short extracts from some of our Oral History Interviews
*Please note, for a better immersive experience we recommend listening with headphones*

Working in association with the Oral History Society, we trained 5 new interviewers (Grete Dalum, Bekki Frost, Laura Graham Beverley Jones and Mo Shapiro) to interview 25 local residents about Northampton and Corby’s respective New Town stories.

We have collaborated with composer Alice Boyd to present short sections from a handful of these as original audio pieces.

The full recordings of all 25 interviews will shortly be available to listen for free at East Midlands Oral History archive.

As part of LGBTQ+ Month 2022, we’re delighted to also share a longer interview with Chris Dilworth in which he discusses his experiences living in Northampton.
