Do you have photos of the Rivoli? A childhood Eels scarf? An old Riverside Theatre ticket?

As part of History Week, hosted by the History Council NSW, the City of Parramatta Research and Collection Services team are holding an open day – Pop goes Parramatta –  to collect your popular culture memories!

 Join us at the Parramatta Town Hall, on Friday 8 September, and bring along up to three small objects from 1950 onwards. We’ll photograph/scan your items, and you can tell us about them. We may take some items as donations. Please bring along photographs, concert tickets, supporter badges, fan-club newsletters and more.

We’ll be showing old photos and film footage, and there will be experts on hand to advise on how to identify, assess and care for your items.

If you have a story to share but are unable to attend on the day, please fill in the enquiry form on our website or phone 02 8839 3322 and you’ll hear back from us soon.
