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.
This event at The Public was hosted by Kerrang! Radio DJ Johnny Doom who talked to former ‘Raw Power’ presenter, Ozzfest compere and all round metal expert Krusher. In addition Juneau Projects showed attendees how you can make their very own DIY guitar as part of a whole host of rockin fun family activities!
