Autumn Almanac

Everybody here at the Museum would like to say a great big thank-you for the support we have received throughout the summer. During the school holidays alone we saw over 8,000 visitors - an increase of 40% on the same period last year. We exist to serve our community and it is hugely gratifying to see so many local people getting behind our efforts to keep the Museum relevant to the town.

Coming up in October is Pop it in the Post, a temporary, family-friendly exhibition exploring the incredible role played by the early Royal Mail in our country’s social history.

November brings our seventh annual Cool Choirs - a four-day festival celebrating the area’s primary school singing groups. Everyone is welcome to drop in and catch one of our free, two-a-day concerts featuring the schools’ favourite pop decades.

December wouldn’t be December without the Museum Christmas Market, this year marking its tenth anniversary and shaping up to be bigger and brighter than ever.

Whenever you visit, there’s sure to be something to catch your eye!
