SA History Week 2010 saw a record 405 events across South Australia - everything from tours to talks, from exhibitions to performances, beginning with an outdoor broadcast by ABC 891 in Rundle Mall on 21 May to coincide with the Motoring in the Mall event. The hard work was done by 294 event organisers, whose efforts were rewarded by visits from an estimated 70,000 people keen to know something more about South Australian history. A highlight was the program and website launch at Adelaide Town Hall, a chance for those behind the events to meet, mingle and swap stories. The new website enabled people to find out about History Week online, and proved a great, and interactive, way for people to find, comment on and share events.
