Summer is creeping up

Summer is on its way and as the days are getting longer, and hopefully warmer, why not make your way down to the Museum to catch up on what we have to offer?

We are getting prepared for the summer holidays with a full programme of art and craft activities to keep your children and grandchildren busy. There is something on every day so be sure to pop in, including a visits from Pets at Home and White Post Farm Park.

Planning for our summer blockbuster exhibition, Animal Allsorts, is also well advanced with a chance to discover all the ways in which animals impact on our lives.

Exhibition wise we have the annual return of the James Maude Camera Club, showcasing the work of talented local photographers. Toy Stories, looking at the history of toys, opens on Saturday 24 June and will include toys and games for children of all ages to play with.

As usual there are lots of reasons to visit us over the next couple of months so why not pop in?

Weíre also continuing to run several other regular events. Our monthly valuation day, when an auctioneer from Bamfordís Derby will be on hand to value your treasured possessions, is on 3 July. The Reminiscence Tea Room, a free monthly social event ideal for people with memory loss, their friends and families, takes place on 21 June and 19 July. Feel Good Friday, an opportunity to take part in a little gentle, fun exercise, is on the last Friday of the month apart from in July when it is on 21 July.

If you want more details of any of these events call the Museum on 01623 463088.
