A cherished city space will be celebrated at a special event.
A ‘memory day’ to share photos and memories of The Level in Brighton is being held in the Red Room at the Phoenix Gallery, Waterloo Place in Brighton on Friday, February 8 from 10am to 4pm.
The event is part of a history project being organised by Brighton & Hove City Council to capture people’s memories of The Level.
Images of The Level over the last 70 years are being compiled in an attempt to record the many events, both personal and public, that have occurred there.
These will then be used as part of an exhibition when work on the restoration of the park is completed this summer, as well as becoming a permanent record of the park’s heritage.
People are being encouraged to dig out old pictures and any other memorabilia connected with The Level, such as posters or flyers relating to past events, and drop in to the memory |day.
The event is open to all and recent memories and photos of the park are wanted, as well as older ones. Anyone can go along – even if they don’t have memorabilia – to recount their memories of The Level.
There will be free tea, coffee and refreshments.
