What we've done
Our museum team would like to share with you some past Your Stories, Your Museum (YSYM) events that they were a part of. During these events they had a great time meeting fantastic and interesting people and relished the opportunity to share more information about YSYM project and Guildford Museum. Thank you to everyone who visited our stands.
Surrey County Show
Many people visited our stand and contributed to the project. We have gathered various stories and memories from people that connect with Guildford in many different ways.
Picnic in the Castle Grounds
We were pleased to have received a lot of questions about YSYM project and all the changes planned for Guildford Museum.
Guildford's Great Get Together Street Party
Local residents were delighted to encounter Guildford's museum team on Chapel Street. We even managed to get a minute of fame by being included in Surrey Advertiser, the local newspaper.
Ash Village Fete
We had great fun in joining Ash Village Fete and gathering memories of Ash and the surrounding area.
Inspired by Alice Family Fun Day
The YSYM stand welcomed many visitors from all walks of life. We were even fortunate enough to introduce the project to Deputy Mayor, Councillor Mike Parsons.
Thank you all for telling us your wonderful and captivating stories and memories of Guildford.
Memory of the day - 'swimming in the Guildford Castle Baths- swimming lessons!'

The Friary Guildford
We had a fantastic day at The Friary Centre with local 'That's Surrey TV' visiting and filming the YSYM stand.
Memory of the day - 'meeting a couple who met each other at Guildford Museum and this year will celebrate their silver wedding anniversary'.
Normandy Village Fete
We felt so welcomed by the Normandy Village Fete team and visitors - thank you for having us and for sharing your interesting stories and memories of Guildford!
Memory of the day - 'walking to Farnham from Guildford in the snow in 1962-63'.
Student Union Market
We headed up Stag Hill to University of Surrey Students' Union Campus to be part of their Market Day in October! It was so interesting to know what students and staff had to say about - What makes Guildford, Guildford?
