Celebrate Living History is an online social gathering where we share stories, tales and lives across generations, bringing history to life.

We want you to join our family over the kitchen table. Fight over the best foods. Play games. Listen to Grandma tell stories. Get Crafty. Wear clothes from the 1980s.

Do you love exploring op shops to find that special bargain? Can’t get enough of listening to every day stories from every day folks? We do too! We are making the past cool and sharing it across the world. Will you come and join us?

                     Feel free to have a gander at our mini magazine! 

We have a new book out Entrepreneurs Generations Apart which can be purchased at Amazon.
