Temporary gallery

Talking Shop

11 February – 1 September

When Stevenage New Town Centre opened in 1959, it was the first pedestrian shopping centre of its kind in the UK. Since then, what’s set the centre apart are the people who’ve worked and shopped in the town, bringing it to life. Come and discover memories and stories from our town centre over the years.
