UH Heritage Hub Exhibition, 3rd May

Thursday 3rd May, the former barber shop at 1, Salisbury Square will host a University of Hertfordshire exhibition on the heritage of Old Hatfield.

For the past three years, University of Hertfordshire students studying Architecture and Interior Architecture & Design have been working with the local community, the Old Hatfield Residents Association, Gascoyne Cecil Estates and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council to explore and understand the urban fabric, interior and exterior, of the Old Town.

Mindful of the proposals to rejuvenate Salisbury Square and open a different chapter in the story of the Old Town, it was considered an appropriate time to look back at how Old Hatfield has changed through time, and in particular to explore the individual histories of residents who have experience of the place at different stages in its history. The Heritage Hub project – funded by the University of Hertfordshire, Gascoyne Cecil Estates and the Old Hatfield Residents Association – has brought together the different strands of this work done over the past three years.

The exhibition will run from 3-8pm at 1 Salisbury Square. All are welcome to celebrate the heritage of the Old Town and the work undertaken by the local community and the University.

For those unable to attend, there will be a second opening of the exhibition on Tuesday May 15th, 6-8pm.
