Pub Quiz @ Weston Museum

Try your luck at our pub quiz; learn a little about your local history and have a laugh at the same time. You don’t need lots of historical knowledge; we promise to keep the questions simple, with only the occasional head scratcher thrown in. The quiz includes a mystery object round, so whilst you’re enjoying your drink, you can also have a guess at a selection of historical objects and replicas.

It’s free to enter a team (of up to five people) and the pub landlord has kindly donated a prize for the winning team. You don’t need to register beforehand, just turn up ready to start at 7:30pm.

Matilda Temperley- A View From The Hill

Documentary and fashion photographer Matilda Temperley has been working on a year-long project to discover and document Somerset today.

A View From The Hill is an exhibition of new images by the award-winning photographer capturing Somerset’s wonderful distinctiveness and some of the issues facing its communities today.

Matilda studied biology at Edinburgh University before completing an MSc in the control of infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. After working in the field in East Africa Matilda returned to the UK where she pursued a new career in photography.

Matilda’s photography is diverse and includes fashion and documentary commissions. Her work regularly appears in internationally recognised newspapers and magazines.

Matilda is passionate about her documentary projects, many of which explore the experience of marginalised communities. She is probably best known locally for her work in response to the winter floods of 2013–14 which severely affected her family and the community where she grew up. Her sell-out book, Under the Surface: Somerset Floods, won the Royal Photographic Society’s Vic Odden Award.

Happy HeARTs @ Weston Museum
Oct 1 @ 19:00 – 21:00
Happy HeARTs @ Weston Museum

Happy HeARTs is a series of workshops that will allow you to enjoy the benefits that creative art brings to your emotional and physical well-being.

This journey of self-discovery and self-healing will unlock the power of the sub-concious mind, allowing you to de-stress, relax and unwind.

You will explore a variety of ancient tools including mandala, affirmations and journalling. Using these therapeutic processes you will create your own art using self-expression rather than having high expectations of creating a masterpiece.

These workshops will increase creativity, intuition and help to manifest your dreams. They will change your limiting beliefs, heal emotional pain and will help you manage emotions in a positive way. Increasing confidence and happiness, helping you achieve the life you want to live.
