About Time: SA’s History Festival

It’s almost here… There’s only 3 weeks left until May, which means History Month in SA!
About time: South Australia’s History Festival runs from Thursday 1 May until Saturday 31 May with almost 500 events occurring across the state.

The Library is holding three key events during this time, starting with Kidstory History on 1 May. You can join David our Local Historian, for an interactive story time designed especially for kids aged 3-5. Theses sessions will take you back in time to three key eras in Tea Tree Gully’s history through stories and objects from our Local History collection.

roller dicso BWDay-Glo, Go-Go and Roller Disco: TTG in the 1980s, is a feature event looking  at the growth in the Tea Tree Gully area during the 1980s from the development of the O-Bahn to the expansion of Golden Grove, but does it in the form of a roller disco! Immerse yourself in the 80s, the music, the images and the history! Roller skates provided. WARNING! Event may contain traces of Duran Duran!

highercombe BWOur final and  largest event is the Community Archaeological Dig at the Highercombe Hotel Museum starting the week Monday 19 May. The Local History Service, Highercombe Museum, TTG Historical Society and Flinders Archaeological Society are joining forces to conduct an archaeological dig and the public are invited to help! If you can dig, photograph or help us catalogue-we want you. What will we find?

All events require bookings and all details can be found on our website.
