Here is a list of the things going on at Trowbridge Museum over the next couple of months.
Things for adults:
Not In A Pub Quiz 2019
Leykers, White Hart Yard
If you enjoyed our Not In A Pub Quiz in 2018 you’ll be overjoyed to know that it returns in February 2019. Yes, the fairly challenging, occasionally amusing, sometimes tense Not In A Pub Quiz is back for more brain-teasing on the second Sunday of the month. There’ll be a few changes this year but it still starts at 7.30, the cost remains at £2.50 per player and there is a maximum of six players per team. Enormous thanks go to Tracy and Graham of Leykers for agreeing to host it again. The changes include some new rounds, a new points system for the league, possibly a tweak to the prize money but the biggest development is the introduction of a joker!
This year we already have a fantastic prize for the team winning the league. Not only do they win a magnificent trophy to take home and cherish for a year, but they win a very expensive bottle of Champagne. Real, French Champagne, not cheap Prosecco.
So get your team together, think of a team name, pop along to Leykers in White Hart Yard (from 7pm onwards), purchase some of their delicious beverages and settle in for an enjoyable evening of quizzing.
This year’s quiz dates are as follows:
- 10th February, 7.30pm
- 10th March, 7.30pm
- 14th April, 7.30pm
- 12th May, 730pm
- 9th June, 7.30pm
- 14th July, 7.30pm
- 8th September, 7.30pm
- 13th October, 7.30pm
- 10th November, 7.30pm

The Museum staff have now relocated to the Civic Centre to make way for the builders.
EW Bear Ltd are to be the building contractors for the Museum Project and are due to start their construction activities on the 17th June 2019.
We met with Project Design and Interpretation contractor Chris Jones of Smith and Jones on the 1st May. This was to further develop the layout and themes for the expanded Museum. This was really exciting and Trowbridge is on course to have an awesome Museum in 2020. As soon as the Museum floor plans have been updated we will share them on the Project Facebook Page, you can view this by clicking here.
