A Victorian Christmas Evening @ Weston Museum
Dec 15 @ 17:00 – 19:30

Get into the traditional festive spirit by joining us for a special evening opening. Soak up the wonderful Victorian Christmas atmosphere of the museum lit up by twinkling lights around our big tree, whilst under the covered starlight of our glass courtyard ceiling. We will be joined by the lovely children’s choirs from Ashcombe Primary School and Milton Park Primary School for the first half of the evening and then by the Weston Choral Society for the second half. They will be singing a mixture of traditional carols with a few of the modern classics thrown in!

Have a little nibble of our Christmas menu, enjoy a warming mulled drink and listen to some traditional Christmas carols. We will also have lots of stocking fillers and quirky gifts that you won’t find on the high street for sale in our shop. There will be special one-off offers for this evening only, so you can grab a bargain in your Christmas shopping!

No need to book and the museum is free entry, Merry Christmas everyone!

Songs and Poems of the First World War @ Weston Museum
Jun 10 @ 11:15 – 13:00

As part of the museum’s celebrations of the Centenary of the signing of the Armistice at the end of World War One, we are staging a concert of music and poetry readings from the period of World War One. The museum’s beautiful covered courtyard will be filled with a mixture of music and poetry throughout the morning, so visitors can drop in and enjoy the atmosphere, alongside viewing the displays in the galleries.

Clara’s Cafe will also be offering a few specials added in to its delicious menu that have a First World War feel for visitors to enjoy whilst listening to the music and poetry.

The museum is free entry and this is a free event, but you can support the work of the museum and support your local heritage by making a donation in any of the donation points throughout the building.
