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.
As part of the museum’s celebrations of the Centenary of the signing of the Armistice at the end of World War One, we are staging a concert of music and poetry readings from the period of World War One. The museum’s beautiful covered courtyard will be filled with a mixture of music and poetry throughout the morning, so visitors can drop in and enjoy the atmosphere, alongside viewing the displays in the galleries.
Clara’s Cafe will also be offering a few specials added in to its delicious menu that have a First World War feel for visitors to enjoy whilst listening to the music and poetry.
The museum is free entry and this is a free event, but you can support the work of the museum and support your local heritage by making a donation in any of the donation points throughout the building.
Can you believe it’s been almost a year since the museum reopened its doors after the big refurbishment?! Well, to celebrate our first 12 months, we are going to have a party and you’re all invited!
Throughout the day, there will be party games, special treats in the café and shop, objects to explore and the chance to hear all about the work that the museum does, from learning to outreach, including how people can get involved through volunteering. Visitors can drop in throughout the day to get involved, have some fun and even enjoy some birthday cake!
