Victorian Daventry – Open Saturday 2nd February

Daventry Museum is open this Saturday 2nd February from 10am to 4pm with its brand new exhibition Victorian Daventry – A Period of Change.

The exhibition covers much of Queen Victoria’s reign which saw the implementation of several Parliamentary Acts which reformed society and paved the way for modern Daventry.
Exhibits portray what it would have been like to live during the Victorian era, covering aspects of schooling, child labour and rural living. Not forgetting the new and fascinating advancements in technology being discovered during this period.
