Bring your items to Stockwood Discovery Centre

Have you got an object that tells a story about Beds, Herts and Bucks?

Maybe a memento of a local event, an item of clothing from an iconic shop, or simply something that reminds you of a family story that deserves a wider audience?

If so, join Gill Gauntlett and BBC Three Counties Radio at Stockwood Discovery Centre in Luton for a special programme as part of the BBC's History of the World in 100 Objects on Saturday 20th February.

Gill will be joined by experts from local museums to talk about the artefacts that remind us about our area's amazing history.

Find out what makes an interesting historical object - and what's worth hanging onto now!

Don't worry if you're not a techno-wizz, there will be plenty of people on hand to help you out.
