An excellent exhibition was held in Charlton Down Village Hall (Herrison Hall) on 7th April displaying all sorts of memorabilia relating to the former Herrison Hospital which closed in 1992 and eventually was redeveloped as private accommodation. On display were hundreds of photographs and artefacts and it is estimated that up to 1000 visitors attended the event.
KeeP 106 presented a two hour broadcast from the event – a particularly nostalgic occasion for several presenters who were involved in the hospital’s own radio station, Radio Herrison, all those years ago! Below is the recording of the show.
