Weather Extremes: Making and Breaking Records in Nottinghamshire

About

Friday 16 December 2016 - Sunday 26 March 2017
11am-4pm Tuesdays-Sundays

Weston Gallery
Admission Free

 

This exhibition uses the materials held by the University of Nottingham's Manuscripts and Special Collections to explore the history of extreme weather events in Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas.

Key events in Nottinghamshire's weather history will be featured: floods, droughts, storms, extremes of temperature and other strange atmospheric happenings (some well-known, others long-forgotten). Archival sources reveal how extreme weather affected daily life in the city of Nottingham and the wider county, the impact it had on different groups in society, their responses to it and which events entered the public memory.

The display also explores the contributions of Nottinghamshire people to the extreme weather archive and to the wider development of the science of meteorology. The exhibition materials not only illustrate the diversity of documentary records available for extreme weather history in the UK, but also serve  to demonstrate the changing nature of weather recording and weather records over time.

Visitors will also be invited to share their own weather memories.

The exhibition has been jointly curated by Professor Georgina Endfield and Dr Lucy Veale (School of Geography) and Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham. The Weather Extremes research project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)
