Daventry Museum is delighted to announce that at the Northamptonshire Heritage Awards held on 14th July in Higham Ferrers, the museum won the “Museum Event of the Year” category for the British Science Week Event held in March 2016.

The Forum Awards is a very prestigious event which showcases excellence within Museums, Galleries and Historic Houses in Northamptonshire, and so the museum is thrilled to have been recognised.

The Award would not have been achieved without the dedication and hard work from the Volunteer Team and support from the Town Council.

The British Science Week Event included a series of family friendly and hands on activities, attracting 114 visitors of all ages. With the success and positive feedback from visitors and people involved, the museum would like to make the event a permanent feature on the museum calendar.  Details on how you can join in on the event will be released towards the end of 2016.
