At Bruce Castle Museum and Archives we are committed to collecting community histories and cultural memories that tell the story of our borough - our people, places and events. We want to continue developing our collections of oral histories, photographs, objects and archive material, that tell stories about the people from our diverse communities with links to Haringey.
Everyone's stories are of value and significance - be it the memories of those from the 'Windrush Generation' to people campaigning and protesting for the Black Lives Matter movement today.
If you have, or know someone with their own recollections and stories, and would like to add them to our collections at Bruce Castle Museum and Archive, please contact email@example.com for more information.

Online Workshop - A Story to Tell: Creating, Collecting and Sharing our Stories
Storytelling is a tradition especially cherished in Caribbean and African cultures, and is known to have a positive impact on people's health and well-being. Reconnecting with that tradition, this workshop showcases successful oral history and collective memory projects in Haringey, which have recorded the stories of our elders, and are now held in the archives at Bruce Castle Museum.
The workshop is aimed at those interested, but new to collecting stories - be it talking to the 'Windrush Generation' or to communities recently arrived in Haringey. It will look at how to go about setting up an oral history project to record people's stories for future generations to learn from and enjoy. All are welcome.
Online via Zoom. Please book in advance by visiting Eventbrite (external link).
Haringey Libraries hold permanent African-Caribbean book collections at Wood Green, Marcus Garvey and Hornsey Libraries. Titles included in the collections are marked "A/C" on the spine and range from classic to contemporary fiction, biographies, history and much more.
