  • | 1:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, exhibit, museum
    - Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We’ve chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status and the personalities behind the ever-present decision we all face daily - what to wear?

    Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.

    Location: Edgell Memorial Building – 3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA
    Parking: Please park on 3 Oak St. (street parking available) or in the Village Hall lot (2 Oak St.)

    - “People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it’s the other way around.” — Terry Pratchett

    Fugitive Stories is an event that brings new and experienced storytellers together to challenge and delight us with this profoundly personal, accessible craft. We bring Moth and Massmouth Slam winners from Greater Boston who prepare a five- to six-minute story on a theme.


    We welcome special guests from Framingham including the Reverend J. Anthony Lloyd to share his story. We also invite audience members to prepare stories in advance and drop their names in a hat. If chosen, they tell their tale.

    The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, “The Beatles.” It will delve into their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, highlighting The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.

    Following the 97 minute documentary, the screening will include 30 minutes of film footage of the band's 1965 concert at Shea Stadium. This footage was digitally restored for the documentary to 4K resolution, with remastered sound by Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin.

    Director: Ron Howard
    Written by: Mark Monroe
    Starring: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
