At a loss to know what to do this weekend? Why not join The Amazing Pop Up Archives team at the Ripley Music Festival on Saturday.
We’ll be ‘popping up’ with our wonderful yellow and purple tents full of fascinating records relating to Ripley people and places. Will you find your ancestors in the First World War Absent Voters list or in the survey of Butterley Company employees (did your ancestors live in a household without a bible? – yes, that was a question on the survey)?
From tales of the Pentrich Revolution and First World War there will be songs and happenings for all the family, so lots to see and take part in. Make your mark on our map or add to our index cards – just one little snippet about you or your history is all it takes to become a permanent part of the record office collection.
We look forward to seeing you at Crossley Park (DE5 3GT) from 1pm onwards this Saturday.
