The Lord Mayor of Nottingham opens our Black Boy Hotel Exhibition

A huge thank you to our friends, supporters and volunteers who came and visited us on Friday 4 August at the official launch of our ‘Gone but not forgotten’: The Nottingham Black Boy Hotel exhibition.

We had a lovely time catching up with old friends and making new ones, and we only wish that the evening could have been longer. We were pleased to welcome the Mayor of Broxtowe, in addition to many representatives from a wide variety of local history associations and societies.

The Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Cllr Mike Edwards gave a lovely opening speech full of anecdotes and memories before handing over to Richard Upton, who gave our guests a really informative 30-minute talk on the exhibition and his research.

Richard has very kindly allowed us to borrow his body of work for the whole of August; it is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday (and Bank Holiday Monday). Normal parking and entry charges apply.

We hope that the exhibition brings back lots of happy memories – we would love to hear your stories of the Black Boy Hotel, so please do continue to share them on our Facebook page.
