TIME AND TYPE WAIT FOR NO MAN

#OtherFest: History
Description

TIME & TYPE WAIT FOR NO MAN

Built in 1909 as a tribute to Perak’s first British Resident, JWW Birch, the Birch Memorial is fitted with a clock tower comprising a mother bell and four smaller ones. The clock had stopped ticking for a while – until a ‘Clock Doctor’ emerged in the form of mechatronic engineer Niccolas Cheah.

So what went wrong with the Gillett & Johnson Croydon clock? Join Niccolas on this special trail as he helps you understand the history and mechanism of the famous timekeeper.

The nostalgic vibe lingers on as you then proceed to Percetakan Wai Oi Shiar, one of the country’s oldest letterpress printing shops that used to produce ephemera using types in multiple languages. What other treasures hide within its antiquated shop? Only time (and this guided trail) will tell.


Dates: 31st Oct, Sat & 1st Nov, Sun
Time: 10AM
Meeting point: Birch Memorial Clock Tower


Note: This is a FREE event. However, ticket booking in advance is advised. Audience members are also kindly reminded to be at the meeting point at least 15 minutes earlier. If not, tickets will be released to those who are on the waiting list.
