Volunteering Opportunity: Ovaltine Oral History Volunteers

Dacorum Heritage has an exciting volunteering opportunity. We are looking for volunteers to carry out Oral History interviews with former workers and those with personal memories of the Ovaltine Factory in Kings Langley.

We have a large collection of objects from the Ovaltine Factory in Kings Langley, which was open from 1913-2002. The collection includes advertising art-work and films, LPS of the popular radio show The Ovaltineys and photography of the famous adventurers and sportspeople who used Ovaltine to fuel their athletic feats. A major part of the archive contains materials relating to the factory itself such as employee newsletters and uniforms.

We are now keen to enrich our collection by collecting the personal memories and stories of those who worked at the factory through Oral History Interviews. Can you help us by carrying out and recording interviews?

You don’t need to have previous experience, as by joining as a volunteer for this project you will be given Oral History Training.
