Mercury Voices is a two-year project to catalogue fascinating artefacts that tell the story of the history of the Mercury Theatre. We’re moving in to a new phase to gather the memories of audience members, performers and staff through the years – that’s where you come in!

We’re looking for volunteers who are interested in collecting oral histories.  Equipment and training will be provided, and our first training session will take place at Signals Media Centre on Monday 4 December 2017 10am-12pm.

The session will be led by Colchester Recalled and will be a chance to learn oral history techniques and to try out the recording. It will be a really practical session, getting hands on with recording equipment and learning the process of creating oral histories. The training is open to new Voices volunteers of any age or background.

If you’re interested, please drop Claire and Laura a line at mercuryvoices@mercurytheatre.co.uk

We hope you can join us!
