In 2019, Henderson Hall, in celebration of its 50th Anniversary, received a grant from the National Lottery Heritage fund to create a record of the physical and social history of the Hall and its surrounds.
This record took the form of a Storyboard, now permanently sited at the Hall, which shows the Hall’s vibrant history as a much-valued community hub: the clubs, the activities, and the key events that have taken place over the years.
The Storyboard is complemented by Oral History recordings which bring to life the memories, experiences and personal stories of 22 people who have been involved with and supported the Hall.
The project was created and brought to fruition by a local Working Group. The Group worked alongside Jon Dixon, the Storyboard designer, and Tim Jones of As-You-See-It-Media on the recordings. Will Gold, who lives next to the Hall, produced the project video
