People with a connection to the town have lent a pair of shoes that have a special significance. All sorts of footwear are included – from wellies to spectacular high heels; from sneakers to sandals to a pair of wooden shoes from the 18th century.
They belong to people including an Olympic Sailor, Gardener, Soldier, Polar Explorer, Climate-change Protester, Mime Artist, a Judge, a pair belonging to Stanley Baldwin who was Prime Minister in the 1930s, and a bishop. These and many other shoes all belong to people who have fascinating, moving and often extraordinary stories to tell.
The exhibition is being sponsored St Anne’s Church, Bewdley.
The exhibition is free and runs from 22nd July to 22nd September, 10am-4.30pm. Bewdley Museum, in the centre of Bewdley - Load Street.
