Diamond Ring Presentation Tea Dance @ Memorial Hall Oswestry

To Commemorate Oswestry Town Museum’s remarkable collection of love letters written by a soldier to his lover in WW2, we have grown a diamond from the ashes of burned love letters. As part of Heritage Open Days in 2017, the public were invited to compose and commit their own love letters to a repurposed George V1th postbox, where a memorial fire burned their dedications to ash.
The diamond has been mounted onto a ring, which will be presented to Oswestry Town Museum.
Get your dancing shoes on, your hair up in victory rolls and join us for an afternoon of Tea, Swing dancing and celebrating Love in all is glorious forms.
