After a busy summer following its long-awaited reopening in May this year, you’d have thought that everyone at Trowbridge Museum might have been able to take a bit of a breather . . . far from it!

Trowbridge Museum will be putting on their  since reopening in May this year after their huge redevelopment project. Opening on Thursday 21st October, and kicking off 11 days of activities and events, Trowbridge Museum’s very first Trowbridge Heritage Festival will include 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 an evening cinema showing of the movie Peterloo) cover topics that are admittedly 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, especially over the half-term break, including of course its famous and always popular Mouse Hunt.

Find out more and book tickets on the Trowbridge Museum website and ticketsource, and be sure to check their FacebookInstagram and twitter pages for updates.

Also, as part of the Accreditation process for Trowbridge Museum, the staff need to survey who is and who isn’t visiting. Please take a few minutes to fill in a very quick survey at the link below.
If you could pass the survey on to any friends or family, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Museum looks forward to reading all responses received.
