Each year Weston Museum plays host to a number of events which provide opportunities for both enthusiasts and families to enjoy a great day out.
Our ever popular History Week is back! From Monday to Friday, there will be different eras moving through time up to the Twentieth Century, with reenactors on some days or the chance to immerse yourself in historical living on others.
On Friday, you can learn about life in both the First and Second World Wars, see some of the weapons and hear about life on the home front.
The museum is free entry all year round. Friday’s WW1 and WW2 event in our lovely covered courtyard area is free to enter too and you don’t need to book on this day, but other events throughout the week need to be booked in advance and have a small charge.
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.
