Footwear in Focus for Heritage Open Days in Street

Do something new and join the FREE exhibitions being held at the Grange in Street, specially curated by the Alfred Gillett Trust for Heritage Open Days, England’s largest annual festival of history and culture.

Put your best foot forward and let your eyes delight at our ‘Footwear in Focus’ photography exhibition. Charting the evolution and changing designs of footwear, these images were captured as part of our project to digitise our 25,000 strong collection of footwear through the ages.

As part of the national celebrations at the heart of Heritage Open Days our archive exhibition ‘Extraordinary Women’ tells the story of four inspirational individuals. From a local hero tasked with the education of the workers to a fashion designer collaborating with the global footwear company Clarks, who will be your favourite?

The free exhibition is being held at the Grange in Street (opposite the Clarks Village food court). It is open from 10am to 5pm from 6th to 16th September 2018.
