Musical Memories at the Museum

The last of these events on the 18th March is cancelled

Our museum was recently awarded a grant from the Postcode Community Trust for a series of events called
Musical Memories

We’re hugely grateful to the Post Code Trust as this is enabling us to reach out to older people in our community to
come and enjoy some live music, refreshments and the museum.

Each week on a Wednesday afternoon older people in the community are welcome to attend these sessions which
begins at 2pm

There is music from 2 – 2.45 pm followed by refreshments, chat, a raffle, a visit to around the museum and object
handling to stimulate memories. The event concludes around 4 p.m.

Each musical session has a different theme, so far we’ve enjoyed traditional music on the accordion and easy
listening on the piano & guitar. The pictures following, are from these first two sessions.

The rest of the programme looks like this; Weds. 4th March is music from the 1950s and 1960s
Weds. 11th March, Songs from the Shows
Weds 18th will be a mix and match on the music front & we’re planning on a few dance moves for those who wish to take part!

The whole event is free to attend & transport can be provided
Please call the museum if you or an older person you know might like to be included 01899 221050.
