Last week we saw the first episode of ‘children of the war’ series being uploaded onto the People Stories website. The series combines archive footage and images with recorded interviews, which are held at a location in Liverpool. In the first episode we meet Frederick Eccleston, Fred is originally from Bootle but now resides in Bebbington, he tells us of a time which many of us are completely unaware of.
Mark, who created the video with the help of Robert, is looking for more stories in which to add to the ‘children of the war’ series. If you or someone you know has a story to tell about the war that we faced on our own soil, here in Liverpool, please do get in touch and we will pass your information on to Mark, who will be more than happy to record your stories so that it can be accessed for many years to come!
Along with the new content on the website we have also had the African Oye festival stop by at Sefton Park again. The festival, which has been going strong since 1992, sees acts from all over the world combine to entertain the Liverpool crowd for two days. The festival (which is completely free!) continues to grow each year, with festival goers coming from all over the British Isles to see, hear and taste what the African Oye festival has in store for them.
If you have any pictures or videos of the festival, upload them! We want to see your personal experience of the African Oye.
