This interactive exhibition takes visitors on a journey down their High Street, from its medieval markets and fairs through to the prosperity of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Surviving wars and depressions, the High Street emerged into the consumer boom of the 50s and 60s, when everyone was told they had never had it so good. But what is the future of the High Street in the 21st century?

Visitors will be invited to think about the role of their High Street today and contribute their own thoughts on how it may prosper in the future.
