All 18 of our community listening benches have now been launched across Essex, as part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project, You Are Hear: sound and a sense of place. Each bench plays a selection of clips from Essex Sound and Video Archive recordings - clips about the area chosen by volunteers from that community. Can you find all the benches?
As we near the end of this three-year project, we need your feedback! We would be very grateful if you can spare a few minutes to complete a short survey about your experiences (link opens in a new tab). Good, bad, indifferent - all responses are useful.
Our two touring listening benches are currently at their final tour destinations: Weald Country Park and the Guildhall, Finchingfield. In June/July 2018, the benches will move to their new permanent homes at Danbury Country Park and Chalkwell Park, Southend-on-Sea.
