Hall Street, Open 11 March to 29 May 2016, every Saturday and Sunday 11am-3pm, FREE ENTRY
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.
CSES 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.
Full details can be found on our events page.
