Marconi Celebration – Virtual Walk and Walk n Talk Tour
A unique video looking at the Marconi story from a Chelmsford perspective.
This virtual walk will take you on a tour from the first Marconi factory at Hall Street to the second at New Street. It features how the centre of Chelmsford looked during those early Marconi days. The presentation and commentary covers how the people of Chelmsford played a key part in the early days of the evolution of this once great company. As this video was generated using digital technology and will be made available over the internet, this is a very fitting tribute to the Father of Wireless and the birthplace of the electronic age.
Tune in to the Chelmsford Civic Society YouTube channel on the day to view the video.
There will also be a Walk n Talk version of the Marconi walk. Stream the audio of the tour on your device and walk the tour at your own pace at any time during the festival and beyond. Visit our YouTube channel to stream the audio.
