Doors Open Day at The Arcade
On Doors Open Day The Arcade, Broadmead will be plunged back in time to 1875, 50 years
after it was opened. Actors and entertainers in period costume will engage with the public,
capturing their imagination and creating the bustle of a busy Victorian Arcade. Two of the empty shop
units will house a mock up of a Victorian room and a display of photographs of The Arcade
throughout the years. The aim is to create a highly interactive, informative, intriguing and memorable
experience for the visitors to The Arcade on Doors Open Day. We want to open people’s eyes to the
beauty of the architecture, the history of The Arcade and the experience they can have there today.
If you would like to be involved in this exciting project, helping to make history at The Arcade,
Broadmead, please get in touch. Contact Liz Mitchell, Project Coordinator, Animate the Streets
(Doors Open Day) on 07949 363350 or animatethestreets@....
