Memory Aquarium

The Bramley Memory Aquarium contains a permanent archive of memories that were gathered from people all over West Leeds about their relationship to Bramley Baths. This Oral History project was funded by Heritage Lottery and helped to inspire Mermaid Tales, a live performance and installation by Yorkshire Life Aquatic in partnership with Bramley Baths and Leeds College of Art in 2015.

Meander down memory lane by listening, watching or flicking through the real and personal memories donated to the Memory Aquarium. And if you’d like to leave your memory with us for posterity, please comment on the page or email [email protected]
