Community Gallery

Weston Museum’s Community Gallery tells the story of Weston, and it’s people.

Weston super Mare is home to a broad cross section of communities and each one has a story to tell.  Our work with community groups has allowed us to share their stories with locals and visitors alike.

So far we have been delighted to work with the following groups to help celebrate their stories:

  • Greek Cypriots of Weston
  • North Somerset Black & Ethnic Minority group
  • Alzheimer’s Society
  • Uphill Village Society
  • The Spanish Civil War and the West Country
  • Weston Pride LGBT+
  • Citizens Advice
  • Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway
  • North Somerset Gypsies and Travellers.

The Community Gallery houses a professional display case which allows community groups to display artefacts and our interactive touch screen helps you explore images, videos and oral history recordings.

The Community Gallery is put together by museum volunteers and has been made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Sharing Heritage grant.

This is a space for telling your story.

Want to share your group’s stories with us? We’d love to hear from you!
