Nostalgia café will be running as usual with historical objects to handle. Activities for children include story reading by Weston Library, film shows, colouring in, puzzles and board games.

Community exhibition on the Alzheimer’s Society with photographs from the A1 Camera Club and oral histories, a Sharing Heritage project led by museum volunteers. Refreshments on sale in Clara’s café.
