Oral History Project Manager needed at Bath Abbey

Following a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Bath Abbey is looking for an experienced and highly motivated project manager for their ‘Creating Voices’ oral history project. 

This project will explore the connections between the present Abbey, and the individuals and craftsmen who have worked on this particular building and cared for the fabric. Working in conjunction with Bath Spa University, the ‘Creating Voices’ project will collect and present people’s stories from over a 60-year period of the Abbey’s rich and inspiring history, from the 1942 Bath Blitz, which provided the impetus for the 13 year post-war restoration of the Abbey, up to the end of the Abbey 2000 Restoration. The formation of the Friends of Bath Abbey in 1948 was crucial to the preservation and enhancement of the Abbey during this period, as the Friends provided the driving force and much of the funding for both these programmes. A wide variety of people have used their skills and talents to preserve and enhance this historic and beautiful building, and we hope to interview as many of them as possible in order to explore themes such as creativity, craftsmanship, and the giving of time and skills.
