Welcome to Mansfield Museum!
As the Summer comes to a close we are looking forward to a fun packed Autumn here at the Musuem.
We are delighted to be hosting an exhibition to celebrate the life of one of the towns’ most famous home-grown stars - the late great Alvin Stardust. ‘Stardust Memories’ will feature evocative memorabilia from all stages of Alvin’s 50-year career. It opens on Saturday 22 September with a tribute concert at the Mansfield Palace Theatre with the Alvin Stardust Band and guests. The exhibition runs from 22 September to 17 November and is expected to draw aficionados from all over the UK.
The end of our exhibition to mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War is fast approaching. ‘Remembering WW1 - Museum of the Mercian Regiment on Tour’ will be on show until Saturday 24 November. This prestigious display of memorabilia from the local Mercian Regiment - formerly the Sherwood Foresters – is temporarily in residence at the Museum while Nottingham Castle, its usual home, is redeveloped. This gives local people easy access to the collection’s splendours. Don‘t miss it!
As usual for the October half term we have something planned for every day so why not pop along and join in with all the fun? Details will be available soon.
And finally, if it is not too early to be thinking about Christmas, please add the dates of our Christmas Market to your diaries - Thursday 29 and Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December.
We hope to see you soon.
