Zoom Christmas Crafternoon for Mind Charity #WOWW

On Saturday 5th December at 11 am, we will be hosting a Zoom Crafternoon in aid of Mind.

This will be an informal chatty workshop to bring people together in these  isolating times. We will be creating Christmas-themed ‘Cup of Tea Greetings Cards’ for the tea-drinkers in our lives, to send the feeling of wellbeing far and wide!

In history, women have been dismissed as the ‘tea makers’. This workshop will celebrate the benefits of a cup of tea and chat with friends and the significance it still holds in all our lives.

Covid-19 Update: We are Open!

We’re delighted to be able to welcome you all back from Saturday 1st August! However, your safety is our number one priority and so there are a few changes to our usual routine:
1. Our current opening hours are 10-5, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
2. We are restricting numbers into the museum and so there may be a wait and/or a booking system.
3. We ask that you respect the 2m distancing rule at all times and that you use the hand sanitizers around the museum, (particularly before touching the interactives).
4. Our coffee shop is still running on a takeaway basis until the rules change and we can be assured of your safety.
Thank you so much for your co-operation and for continuing to support us during these challenging times.
