RAF Stories: Big Weekend Volunteer (Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre)


Could you help to record the memories of your local community?


This year the Royal Air Force Museum is launching the RAF Stories Big Weekend, taking place across the country on Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 November 2019. It will be at the Wiltshire and History Centre on Saturday the 30 November 2019.

The RAF Stories Big Weekend gives the public their chance to visit a local venue and have their memories, or their family stories recorded by a team of volunteers. This national weekend will see the capture of hundreds of stories relating to the Royal Air Force across the country.

We are looking for volunteers who can welcome members of the public into a local venue and record their stories using the RAF Stories app.
