A People’s History of the Level is a community oral history project exhibition runs from 9th – 26th November 2013.
The exhibition covers the fascinating history of the park over 80 years, taking in everything from World War Two, when part of the park was taken over by the Royal Engineers, through to the devastation wreaked to the park’s trees by the great storm of 1987. The Level has also hosted many protests including the suffragettes’ open air meetings and the women’s peace camp of the 1980s.
The history project has been organised as part of the transformation of The Level in central Brighton, by Brighton & Hove City Council. The park is like a back garden for many people in the city who don’t have an outside space of their own.
The exhibition is the result of local people getting involved in a series of history and heritage information, exploration and training events, and sharing their memories and memorabilia, over the past year.
The exhibition will be held at the Bertie MacLaren Pavilion, the Level, Brighton BN1 4ZN
