Museum of Stories

Bury Park

Experience the magic of Bury Park through its stories past and present

September 2023 – February 2024


Museum of Stories is a new community-led audio walk featuring real people’s stories. Each story has been pinned to a map, in the place where it happened. All can be experienced by downloading the Museum of Stories app, and taking yourself on a walk around Bury Park. All you need is a smartphone and some earbuds.

The twelve 5-minute audio dramas in the Museum were sourced by setting up a phone line, and inviting Bury Park residents past and present to call up and tell us their tales. Contributors were paired with a professional writer to develop their story into a short script, which was then recorded by a talented cast of community actors, and uploaded to the app.

Stories can be listened to in any order. Some are indoors, some are outdoors – all are real. Come and hear a few, several, or all at once. You can stop for lunch, or even come back to finish them another day.

Museum of Stories is now available to experience for free, at a time of your convenience. Please visit https://appliedstories.co.uk/museum-of-stories to download the app.


Museum of Stories is an Applied Stories project, supported by Arts Council England, Revoluton Arts and Luton Borough Council’s Heritage department.
