Our Time Travellers of Dunstable commission explores the idea of ageing as a form of time travel in a unique new sound piece created by artist Julie Myers.
Working with forty over 55s, Julie collected and recorded their memories and stories of the town, past and present, and their thoughts on the years ahead.
“We spent the summer running wild in the woods and the fields, sometimes playing in the fountain at the Cali pool in our knitted bathing suits.”
These memories can be heard in Dunstable town centre in circular coloured ‘Audio Zones’ on
Friday 25th July 2014, 11am-3pm
at the following locations;
- Ashton Square
- The Quadrant
- Vernon Place.
Like listening to a radio broadcast, sit and listen to the collections of memories over a cup of tea.
You can also listen to the stories online;
A Test Beds commission.

Six commissions will happen over the next two years in central Bedfordshire. Contact us to find out more about the commissioning process.
