May 26 @ 10:00 – Sep 16 @ 17:00
'That's The Way To Do It; Punch and Judy Through The Ages' - Exhibition @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

That’s The Way To Do It: Punch and Judy Through The Ages is a new family friendly touring exhibition created in association with The Fedora Group. It tells the story of Punch and Judy, our nation’s most celebrated puppets, and their development over time.

The exhibition will evoke nostalgic memories of seaside holidays and reveal the stories of local Punch and Judy Professors, whilst exploring the meaning and relevance of Punch and Judy in the twentieth century.

The exhibition is free to enter, but visitors are encouraged to help support the museum through making a donation in one of the stands around the museum. The exhibition will be open during standard museum opening times of 10-5 Monday to Sunday.

Weston Museum Quiz Night @ Weston Museum
Sep 12 @ 18:30 – 21:00

mini ad for pub quiz

Try your luck at our monthly quiz night; learn a little about your local history and have a laugh at the same time.

During our refurbishment closure, we travelled around the local pubs with our own brand of fun and interesting, but definitely not serious, quizzes. Now that we have our lovely building back, you can come in and join us here. You don’t need lots of historical knowledge; we promise to keep the questions simple, with only the occasional head scratcher thrown in. The quiz includes a mystery object round, so whilst you’re enjoying your drink from our bar of locally sourced drinks and nibbles, you can also have a guess at a selection of historical objects and replicas.

Only £5 to enter a team (of up to five people) and there is a prize for the winning team. Numbers are limited so you can book in advance to guarantee your team a slot, but if there is space then we won’t turn you away on the night. Join us from 6.30, ready for the quiz to start at 7pm.

Any questions? Just give the team a call or send us an email.
