We hope you will join us in our ongoing Oral History Project. Recording your memories of the events that made Brixham what it is today will help us to safeguard those stories for future generations.

Do you have a story to tell about Brixham?
Do you remember the Mayflower II being built?
Did you see the U-boat at the Breakwater?
Why not let us record your stories for our Oral History Project? We'd love to see your memories safeguarded for future generations!
Alternatively, would you like to learn the most most professional way to record an Oral History? Then volunteer for our team. We'd be delighted to have you on board. This is a two year 'Hear & Now' Project in cooperation with SoundCommunities.
