A unique history:
From 20 July we will be opening every weekend for the holiday period (Saturday 10am-4pm / Sunday 2-5pm) with a temporary special exhibition in our reception – Let’s Celebrate! The centre piece will be a collection of photos from a very special celebration that took place in July 1919, as well as other events where the town has come together and enjoyed themselves.
As you know we are working on brand new exhibitions. Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery fund we have been able to bring in a firm of exhibition designers and planners to help us. There has been some unavoidable delays, but it is a large ambitious project.
Progress is being made, but there are so many aspects that we are having to consider, apart from the objects and images, there will be inter-actives, sound and special effects, as well as other facilities that we want. It is important we get this right.
