Marconi Exhibition

Despite our best efforts to secure the ground floor of Hall St (the world's first wireless factory) with representations at the planning meeting in Dec 2014, attempts to raise the £400,000 with a crowd funding campaign, staging the Marconi Exhibition at Hall Street 2016 followed by the Titanic Exhibition in Bond St this year, the developer decided to convert the ground floor to apartments.

Sadly an opportunity has been missed to set up a science and heritage centre in this iconic building.

We will continue to raise the flag for Marconi's pioneering achievements in Chelmsford with of course 2020 on the horizon - the centenary of the first broadcast from New Street by Dame Nelly Melba.
