Latest News

Accreditation

Yate Heritage Centre has recently acquired Full Museum Accreditation status.

This is a national standard recognising that we represent a recognisable measure of quality of museum service.

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 .
