Event details

An evening viewing of VAL's 50 year heritage project exhibition, with cheese, wine and conversation.

Over the last year our volunteers have been interviewing local activists for VAL's 50th anniversary heritage project. Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we've been gathering the stories about these great Lewisham organisations and the people connected with them, including St Laurence Church, Somerville Youth and Play Provision, Vietnamese Women and Families Association and Walters Way Self-Builders/RUSS.

Comments from the launch event:

  • “...fascinating stories, beautifully and cleverly curated with excellent quality accompanying audio”
  • “Excellent display of community engagement and how it shapes communities”
  • "Great exhibition! Wonderful to be reminded of all that can be achieved when we work together”
  • “A wonderful collection of memories – should be seen by as many people as possible”

These fascinating stories are currently on display at VAL, plus you'll be able to listen to the edited recordings of interviews. Come along for a drink, nibble and the usual networking opportunities, whilst being inspired by Lewisham's amazing people.
