Timed with the 50th anniversary of Sarfraz’s arrival in Luton, he’s calling on fellow Lutonians to contribute items that shine a light on the town’s unique story.
Sarfraz wants your personal objects with a story to tell—whether it’s work, family, pleasure, culture, or sports. Dig out that vintage sewing machine or share a snippet from your rebellious teenage diary from the ’70s. The quirkier, the better!
Taking a stroll down memory lane, Sarfraz cherishes a childhood photograph captured on his 4th birthday, a year after his family’s arrival in Luton from Pakistan. In the snapshot, he wears a pale pink shirt adorned with unmistakably ’70s style collars. This shirt, a precious relic from his childhood, will have a special place in his upcoming exhibition.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Complete the submission form here, email it with a photo of your item to Luton50@culturetrust.com, or meet Sarfraz at Wardown House on Sunday 3 December, Sunday 21 January, or Wednesday 21 February 11am – 4.30pm.
So, dive into your memories, rummage through your treasures, and let’s make Luton’s history heard!
