Weston Museum Quiz Night @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Try your luck at our monthly quiz night; learn a little about your local history and have a laugh at the same time.

The quiz includes a mystery object round, so whilst you’re enjoying your drink from our bar of locally sourced drinks and nibbles, you can also have a guess at a selection of historical objects and replicas.

Only £5 to enter a team (of up to five people) and there is a prize for the winning team. Numbers are limited so you can book in advance to guarantee your team a slot, but if there is space then we won’t turn you away on the night.

Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start.

Any questions? Just give the team a call or send us an email.

Tea and Talk @ Weston Museum

Weston Museum’s monthly ‘Tea and Talk’ usually takes place on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and features a wide variety of subjects and speakers from our wonderful band of volunteers.

Enjoy a short talk followed by a drink and some cake, with the opportunity for an informal chat with the speaker and to mingle with friends.

This month’s subject is a National Clean Earth-related talk, with the speaker still to be confirmed.

There is no need to book ahead and the small charge of £3 includes tea or coffee as well as some of the delicious homemade cake, baked on site at the museum in Claras’s Cafe.

Future topics will be announced on our Facebook page (@westonmuseum)
