Tring & District Local History Museum would like to collect documentation of the significant events in the lives of Tring Residents during the Queen’s reign to record for posterity. Whether you were born here, or are new to the town, everyone’s memories are important. After all, our diversity makes Tring such a lively place to live. They would especially like to hear about any encounters involving Royalty.
They invite you to make your own timeline of significant events in the last 70 years, maybe 7 important years in your life, and tell them what happened to you and your family in those years. Email or send us your memories and please include pictures if you have them. Tring Town’s archive will also be recorded, and they are looking for a volunteer to look at the town’s records.
Other organisations, such as churches, local groups and commercial organisations will have their own history, and collected together, in an exhibition over the Jubilee weekend, the personal, the civic and the businesses will all form a memorable record of the life of the town and its inhabitants, for posterity.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or send your memories to: Tring Local History Museum, The Market Place, Brook Street, Tring HP23 5ED.

Tring Productions – Infants: Special Gala Performance
6pm on Sunday 5 June at the Nora Grace Hall, Faversham Close, Tring HP23 5BA. Tickets £15 on the door or £14 at tringproductions.co.uk • Recommended age 12+
A gala premiere of James Lark’s new musical comedy set in an Infant school.
Director Ian McFarlane (The Revellers Society, Forever Oz) adds his trademark pace and visual flair to an exhilarating score by the award-winning composer of Tony Blair the Musical and The Snow Spider, with songs veering from childlike simplicity to sophisticated anfractuosity (that’s a grown-up word for complicated). We can promise toe-tapping tunes, highs, lows and more than a few tantrums. There might be a few naughty words and you will certainly meet a few naughty characters. But after a single calamitous day, we can’t guarantee that everyone will be coming back to school tomorrow…
