*CANCELLED* With England stomping through the rounds and football fever gripping the country, we suspect that many of you will be rather occupied this Wednesday, so we are calling off this month’s quiz night. We will see you all again for next month’s quiz on Wednesday 8th August 🙂     

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 7.30pm.

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

‘Know Your Place’ Mapping Day @ Weston Museum
Jul 21 @ 11:00 – 15:00
'Know Your Place' Mapping Day @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

North Somerset is part of “Know Your Place”, an online mapping and local history project. This is a free digital mapping project which allows users to explore the heritage of their local area through old maps, archive images and linked information. From the coastal communities of Portishead, Clevedon and Weston, further inland to Blagdon and Leigh Woods, you can now discover how North Somerset has been transformed over time.

Heritage officers from North Somerset Council and staff and volunteers from Weston Museum would like to invite you to an open event where you can learn more about how to use Know Your Place, and even add some interesting information yourself!

Drop in anytime between 11am and 3pm to find out more, no need to book for this free entry event.

We will have some computers available for having a go at using Know Your Place at the event, but if you wish to bring along your own laptop, tablet or mobile phone, we can show you how to use the resource.
 
We would also encourage you to bring along photographs or artifacts we can photograph that you would like to upload to the Community Layer.
