A special ‘Steel Stories’ event took place at Kirkleatham Museum, shining a light on this fantastic exhibition.
This event was to showcase the Steel Stories exhibition to our team of Ambassadors.
Around 55 people attended the event at Kirkleatham Museum, which is a really good turnout for a December evening.
Place Board Chair, and PD Ports CEO, Frans Caljé was our MC for the evening, followed by speeches from Steel Stories Project Officer, Leo Croft about his work in setting the exhibition up; and Dr Joan Heggie spoke about her oral history research for the project, and spoke with steel-worker Mike Guess, about his life in the steel industry.
Attendees then had a guided tour of the fantastic exhibition – lots of great feedback was received about it – if you haven’t been already, you should check it out…
