Looe Street Detectives 3


Looe Street Detectives 3

Saturday 23rd September 2017

The Looe Street Detectives are looking for new members. Would you like to join us? Drop into Plymouth Arts Centre cafe-bar on Saturday 23 September from 1.30-4.30pm to find out more.

The Looe Street Detectives formed in 2013 to investigate the area around the Arts Centre at 38 Looe Street. Drawn from local residents living and working in the city, we investigated the people and events that made up this part of Plymouth, unearthing fascinating insights into those who lived and worked here over the last 500 years.

Today, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are now going to research the history of Plymouth Arts Centre’s site and the people who lived and visited over the centuries. This includes you!

We want to explore who they were and what they did and how their actions meshed or collided with the thinking of their day. Do any of these past characters continue to have an influence on our ideas today?
