Upcoming Events


Museum Takeover
Friday 23 November

We’re giving the kids control!

Takeover Day is a national celebration of children and young people’s contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites organised by Kids in Museums. It’s a day on which they are given meaningful roles, working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the museum. Follow what they’ve been up to on our social media. 

Vegeterian Taxidermy
Wednesday 28 November

Interested in learning about the art of taxidermy? 

We are holding two, 2 hour vegetarian taxidermy (making the mannequin without using the animal skins to cover) workshops.  There will be a short talk about the process of taxidermy, and the mannequins used by professional taxidermists, with the rest of the sessions hands on where you will make your own mannequin using the wood wool bind up technique.

£3 per person, standard admission charges also apply. 

Sessions are morning from 10.30am-12.30noon and an afternoon session 2pm-4pm.  Please reserve your place in advance on 01799 510644 or email Charlotte
