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.
