Oral History Training at Leeds GATELeeds GATE members have enjoyed learning all about recording oral history as part of our project exploring the background and history of the Lee Gap horse fairs. The fairs, believed to be the oldest charter fair in England, take place each year in August and September.

The group enjoyed learning all about interview techniques and using recording equipment to practice in time for the first fair in August. There will be a display about the fair in the Leeds GATE marquee at 'Latter Lee' fair on the 17th August.  This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery small grants programme.
