75th Anniversary of VJ Day - Appeal for Memories/Photos
Yate Heritage Centre

Yate Heritage Centre and Yate Town Council will be marking the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day on the 15th of August 2020.

If you have any images or memories from that time please do contact them.

VJ was the end of WWII. Many people had VJ parties instead of VE Day ones as there was more time to organise them in August. We would love to see your material and read or hear any of your memories.

Domestic Service Appeal

Yate Heritage Centre will be undertaking a community history project based on Domestic Service in the Yate area.

This will be taking place for the remainder of 2020 and the first half of 2021.

If anyone with any knowledge or memories of domestic service or any background or photos please do let us know.

Domestic service was a major employer in the area during the 19th and early 20th centuries and there were scores of houses with servants carrying out all manner of jobs.

We would love to learn more about this important part of our social history.

Remember Going Out in Yate?

Yate Heritage Centre is aiming to put on a Going out in Yate exhibition ready for October/November subject to "you know what".

Community Heritage Officer David Hardhill is looking for anyone with memories of any discos or club nights in the Yate area in 1960s/70s/80s and 90s relating to local venues including the Sterling Suite, Stars and Stripes and Spirals.

He would also be interested in hearing from people with memories of local cinemas especially the King's Cinema and New Parish Hall in Yate.

Please contact David on .
