Confirmed exhibitors include the likes of:

  • West Midlands Police Museum

Birmingham Museums will be bringing along some items from their handling collection so children and adults can get a real feel for historical objects and artefacts. 

City of Wolverhampton Council Director of Strategy, Charlotte Johns, said: “As a council, we are proud to support and see the return of the Wolverhampton Local History Fair and I very much encourage everyone to go along if they can.

“The Local History Fair is a great opportunity for residents to discover our city's fascinating past. The City of Wolverhampton Archives houses a wealth of material relating to the history of all parts of the city, including Bilston, Bushbury, Tettenhall and Wednesfield.

"Visitors will also be able to speak to experts who have carried out wide ranging research into the history of Wolverhampton and the Black Country and find out more about the service that the city archives offer.”

The Friends of Wolverhampton Archives will be providing tea, coffee, cakes and other refreshments for a small contribution, and there will be a series of family friendly activities for children as well.

Entry to the Wolverhampton Local History Fair is £2 for adults and £1 for children. No booking is required - simply turn up on the day.
