Oral History Project

The Oral History Project is a joint undertaking of the Seely Hall Society and videographer Timothy Reeves-Horton of Picnic Studios. The Project aims to record on videotape the reminiscences of long-time residents of the Port Medway area, and to memorialize other accounts and vignettes of life in Port. In this way, the Seely Hall Society hopes to preserve part of Port Medway’s history in an attractive and accessible form. Five videos were made in 2017 and at least as many are planned for 2018.

Project videos will be available for viewing in Seely Hall starting in about June 2018, either when the Hall is open or by appointment. The necessary audio-visual equipment and seating will be installed in one of the two ground floor offices.

We welcome any suggestions for videos or for the Oral History Project in general. Please send them to [email protected]
