Normally open from Easter to the end of October. Opening extended in 2018 to the end of November, as part of the commemorations of the end of the Great War. Opening days tba soon. We hope you will take advantage of the extra opening hours to visit the exhibition about Pershore during the Great War.
The Heritage Centre contains a varied collection of objects, memorabilia, history, and social history mostly related to Pershore and surrounding villages. Associated study material such as documents, photographs, notes, and family histories are held in over 100 folders in the smaller room and are available for visitors to consult. New folders were purchased thanks to our HLF-funded project, WW1 in the Vale. We would like residents, new incomers, and visitors to think of PHC as a useful local resource.
The Heritage Centre is staffed by members of PHHS who will be pleased to offer any help they can, and will try to answer any queries. If you would be interested in joining the Society, and then becoming involved in the Heritage Centre as a steward, please see the Contacts page.
A number of books on local history are available to purchase, including collections of photographs compiled by the late Marion Freeman, a past chairperson of the Society.
Pershore Heritage Centre is an important local resource for all the community, and we need your support. Our aim for 2018 is to engage with more local people, particularly schools and heritage groups.
If any teachers would be interested in working with us on local history projects do please get in touch.
