Here’s this month’s update from Tessa at Trowbridge Museum . . .
The summer holidays may be over but the fun is bound to continue at Trowbridge Museum as we move in to Autumn! More details further on . . .
In the meantime, have you visited us recently and seen the delicious sweet treats that we are now stocking in our Bumbledust Shop? The range of biscuits, chocolates and fudge can’t be missed, as they have our own Stumpy The Sheep featured on the packaging. Also, why not have a browse through our range of books, gifts and souvenirs – treat yourself to something that will make your trip to the museum even more memorable.
So, moving on, in the autumn you’ll be able to Discover Trowbridge through the ages at our 2021 Heritage Festival . . .
Trowbridge Museum will be putting on their very first Trowbridge Heritage Festival since reopening in May this year after their huge redevelopment project. The Festival will open on Thursday 21st October, kicking off 11 days of activities and events including a Horrible Histories-style lecture, cinema, crafts, reenactors and memory days. The Festival will culminate in a two-day history conference, packed full of interesting talks on a variety of topics concerning Trowbridge’s heritage. Many of the events are free to take part in and are perfect for a family audience. Others however (such as a talk on the Road Hill House murder or our evening cinema showing of the movie Peterloo) cover topics that are more suitable for an older audience.
Much of the activity will take place in the brand new Learning Hub located on the Museum’s new upper floor. In addition to the Festival, the Museum will host its usual array of family activities, including its famous Mouse Hunt.
