The Home of Metal Open Days, were like an ‘Antiques Roadshow’ for Heavy Metal fans, inviting fans to bring their memorabilia and stories and to contribute to the ever-growing Home of Metal Digital Archive, helping build a new collection.
At least 80 volunteers were engaged in the exhibitions and events of Home of Metal.
Working with a team of volunteers to deliver these events, the Open Days informed the exciting series of exhibitions to come. These volunteers were made up of a wide range of people whose interest in the project stems from music, social history, regional pride and more. Capsule have worked closely with a number of volunteers over the past 3-4 years to guide them in their research interests.
