Eve Read MARM

Assistant Archivist/Butlin's Project Coordinator

When did you join HAT?

March 2011

What do you do there?

My role is to catalogue HAT’s fascinating archive collections and make them accessible to researchers. I also manage the Butlin’s Heritage Collection project

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I always knew that I wanted to work with history in some way

What is your favourite ad?

I really like the 2004 ‘Matrioshka’ commercial for Smirnoff vodka by JWT London which references classic spy films and has a catchy Russian themed soundtrack (and we have the original Russian doll model from this great ad at HAT in the JWT collection!)

Tell us something we don’t know about you?

I enjoy foraging for wild mushrooms
