Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society is proud to support Marconi Science WorX, an initiative that sees Chelmsford Civic Society working in collaboration with BBC Essex.

The Marconi Science WorX project began with a unique commemorative event entitled Marconi: Building the Wireless Age, which was hosted for three months in the original Marconi Factory in Hall Street prior to its conversion into residential and commercial units.

The ongoing project sees CSES and Chelmsford Civic Society working more closely with Chelmsford Museum to promote and preserve our city's unique industrial heritage.

Building the Wireless Age: A Unique Marconi Exhibition

To celebrate the history and legacy of Marconi and the Marconi Company in Chelmsford, a free commemorative event entitled Marconi: Building the Wireless Age will be hosted over a period of three months in the original Grade II listed Marconi Factory in Hall Street prior to its conversion into residential and commercial units.

Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society will be running hands-on Science and Engineering activities and a series of talks have been organised (pre-booking is required).

Archival material from a variety of sources will be showcased, in many cases for the first time. Contributors include The International Marconi Museum in Bologna, The Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, the Essex Records Office, Chelmsford Museums and several private collections. Local families with their own small collections of Marconi-related memorabilia have also contributed.
