Free summer Exhibition - Chelmsford Innovation: Marconi and Beyond

About this event

Chelmsford has been a world-renowned centre of scientific and technological innovation for well over 100 years, and still is today. Among other things, Chelmsford is home to the world’s first wireless (later radio) factory, the world’s first river water treatment plant and the world’s first colour digital camera – and that’s just from within the last century. Today, companies in Chelmsford continue to build the technology of the future, with high-tech developments in fields as diverse as space, medicine, communications and defence. The impact of industry in Chelmsford on all of our lives is incredible. This exhibition will tell a part of that story, revealing how household names such as Marconi are echoed in the modern age.

Chelmsford Innovation: Marconi and Beyond is an exhibition hosted by ARU and in partnership with Chelmsford Civic Society, Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society and the Marconi Veterans' Association

Our exhibition is free and open to all. There will be fun themed activities for children too.
