On Saturday May 17 as part of the Museums at Night program:

The Museum of Soho shall be hosting their event, The Time Capsule Project: ‘A Pot To Wishin’. An evening of soundscapes, stereoscopes and evocative echoes of Soho.

6.00pm | What Lies Beneath | Jay Carver Head of Archaeology at

Crossrail shall present their recent findings from Europe's Biggest 

Civil Engineering Project. 


7.00pm | The distinguished actor Joss Ackland has written and

recorded an original introduction and reads extracts from

the memoirs of a past resident who grew up in Soho in the

1930's inc. newsreels mixed and realised at Zero One production facilities.


We shall all participate in history and be part of the future with the creation of a time capsule which shall be buried in Soho at a later date.

We are collaborating with Bookleteer to produce a series of Soho

Memoirs from our archive. 

 
As personal remembrances and stories they are steeped in the texture and fabric of the social life of old Soho – something tenuous and precious, yet at the same time hard and unremitting. What makes these accounts special is not a nostalgia for what has disappeared so much as the living connection they establish to how much continues even now within the community of people who live and work there or whose children attend the last remaining school there.
 
A booklet shall be produced as a physical memento of the evening and made available online after the exhibition has ended.

During the evening photographer Jayne Taylor's 3D stereoscopes 
of Soho portraits from her 'Long Live Soho!' Collection shall be on
display.

The Bellarmine Jar is the oldest artefact in our collection and dates back
to the mid 17th Century. It shall be on display at the HoSB for the event.
 
mosoho shall invite the general public to participate and contribute by sharing their stories and memories of their unique experiences of Soho.

Thank you.
