Browns of Chester Memories Event
August 20, 2021 at 12:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
A pop-up display in the heart of Chester Market will offer the chance to experience the iconic Browns department store once again and contribute to a growing archive celebrating its impact in more than two centuries of trading.
On Friday August 20, between 12 noon and 7pm, staff from Cheshire Archives, Cheshire West and Chester Museums and the University of Chester will present some of the objects, photos and documents they hold from the store.
Members of the public are encouraged to come along and view these treasures, as well as share their own memories of, and personal items from, Browns of Chester.
A scanner will be on-site if anyone would like to share a photo taken in or by the store, and the Grosvenor Museum will be accepting items associated with Browns for future public displays. Visitors can also write down memories of the store and offer input on how they feel the legacy of Browns can be publicly remembered.
