This week is your last opportunity to see our current #exhibition, ‘Daventry in 100 Objects’ which showcases artefacts from the museum stores that have rarely been seen before. Next week our museum #volunteers will be busy installing the new exhibition, ‘Collect-o-Mania’ from Monday 29th August to Friday 2nd September, and the museum will be closed during this time. So make sure you visit us..
Join us over Heritage Open Day Weekend from Thursday 8th September to Sunday 11th Septmeber to celebrate Daventry’s historic past. There’ll be guided walks of the Town Centre and of Borough Hill, a tour of the Holy Cross Church bell tower a chance to have a go at bell ringing, and lastly there’s a fun quiz designed to increase awareness of #Daventry’s heritage. The museum will be open on the Saturday..
