Search for Cumbria stories, treasures, photos and tales comes to Barrow

AN EXCITING new project is asking people to get their tales, photographs, memories and opinions ready for its arrival at Barrow indoor market on Friday.

The ‘Treasures of Cumbria’ project, funded by Arts Council England and run by the Cumbria Museum Consortium, is encouraging us all to share what we treasure about Cumbria.

Nothing is out-of-bounds, so it could be something very personal, or something of national or international significance.

Mary Ferguson and her team will be chatting to people arriving at the roadshow and will be in Barrow indoor market from 9am to 4pm.

They will be gathering suggestions, so that these can be shared online at a dynamic new website at www.treasuresofcumbria,org.uk either through images or video footage and voice recordings.

Anyone can decide what makes Cumbria tick and what makes it so special for them.

Ms Ferguson said: “We are interested in everything from where people think the best place to watch the sunset is, to their childhood memories.

“We hope to find unexpected, quirky and surprising things that show the magic of Cumbria once you get beyond the tourist trail.

“We can only build a picture of what makes Cumbria special with input, so we hope to see as many people as possible at our Barrow event on Friday.”

If you cannot attend this event, you can email suggestions to mary.ferguson@tulliehouse.org

Everyone who puts a suggestion forward will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad mini.

The ‘Treasures of Cumbria’ roadshow will also be visiting The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal (January 18) Keswick market (January 25), and Penrith Leisure Centre (January 26).
