Each year Weston Museum plays host to a number of events which provide opportunities for both enthusiasts and families to enjoy a great day out.
Weston Museum’s exciting new temporary exhibition on facial hair and tattoos through the ages features both historical and modern examples of self expression. A photographer has been out capturing some local faces to feature amongst the range of beards, mustaches and body art.
Come along and compare your own styles and artwork with others from across the area and across time!
The exhibition is free entry and will be open during standard museum opening times of 10am – 5pm, 7 days a week. There will also be a variety of activities and events for all ages running alongside the exhibition, with talks for those interested in learning more and pirate themed activities for families!
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.
