Objects roadshow for 'A History of the World'
The Guildhall, Leicester
Come along to the Guildhall on Tuesday 16 February for our 'objects roadshow'

The BBC's 'A History of the World' explores the fascinating stories behind objects that link together people and places, across time and space.

On Tuesday 16 February 2010, BBC Leicester is hosting an 'objects roadshow' at The Guildhall in the city.

Bring an object along that is personal to you and tell us its story.

Meet experts from Leicestershire museums, plus members of staff will be on hand to help you upload your special object to the main website catalogue.

While you are waiting to meet an expert, watch the very best of BBC television's history programmes on the Guildhall's big screen.

There will also be lots of special activities to keep the children occupied.

The event runs from 10:00 until 16:00, with free admission.

Guide for objects

To be included in the 'History of the World' collection, the object must be owned by you and be man-made.

Additionally, objects should have a wider historical significance than simply a personal connection. So best to avoid bringing along family photos, diaries, letters or postcards - unless the object itself has a historical story, e.g. the letter was posted from the Titanic.
