The Gosport Area: memories and photos – Facebook Exhibition (Event from 2023)

In Person

Show / Display

Gosport Museum & Art Gallery (The Roberts Room), Walpole Road, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1NS

This Facebook Group has over 22,000 members from near and far, all associated with Gosport in some way and loving its heritage. This display brings some of the best images from their virtual vault into hard copy for all to view…

Since 2013, hundreds of thousands of precious memories and over 50,000 images have been shared online, many photos and documents from private family records. Pubs, shops, transport of all kinds, roads and coastal views, public services, defence, leisure venues, and celebrations all feature.

Come along and meet other people who remember the Gosport of their youth and have tales to tell handed down from forebears. Bring along your own old photos or documents to show around. Arrange to meet old friends here for a leisurely catch-up in the wonderful Grade II listed community building.

Held in MEMORY of DAVE ROWLAND – founder of the Facebook Group. Can you find his floor tile in the Courtyard of Gosport Museum and Art Gallery?

Note: ‘The Gosport Tube Creative’ sensory textile will be displayed, along with activities for children, from Weds 13th. This tells the story of communications problems in open cockpit flight in WW1 and how Major Smith-Barry came up with a solution that made history.

Duration: Allow 60 minutes.
